Birthplace of Dalai Lama XIV, the Mini-Switzerland of India - Tawang, is an amazing destination for culture-exploring travellers seeking peace and serenity in their lives. Considering travel destinations, unlike others, Tawang is still unexplored in terms of tourism as well as culture. Mostly covered with snow, it is one of the best travel destinations in India.
How to Reach?
Reaching Tawang needs patience, permission and persistence. To enter and travel in Arunachal Pradesh, you need a Permit (no matter what nationality). Starting from Delhi, take the flight to Tezpur, then hire taxi or tour SUVs (Sumo or Innova). It takes almost a whole day (Yes! - 24 Hours) to reach Tawang. I would recommend a halt at Bomdila or Dirang To and Fro respectively. the entire way has hilly slopes and people with altitude and motion sickness MUST carry the relevant medicines.
Condition of the roads?
The conditions of the roads are subject to the season you are visiting in, I would suggest that you take a comfortable SUV to minimize the troubles. If you are travelling in Jan-April, you might find the roads under the snow or full of potholes The entire journey is full of convoluted turns and slopes, with just a few stops for snacks and food. I would suggest that everyone should carry some form of snacks and water supply with them at all times.
