Jaswant Garh War Memorial
We started from Sela pass to Tawang by around 12.30 pm and endured snow fall for sometime, rain for some time and also through wet &amp; really muddy roads. The temperature had dropped really down and we started feeling the frost pains on hands and legs. We stopped at Jaswant Singh memorial, greeted by the army personal with great cheer, had hot tea, biscuits, some friendly chit chats with them, and enquired about the road condition ahead. We were told that there had been heavy snow fall for last few days and take extreme care while driving. From there on, for some part of the road from it was one of beautiful stretches of double road and then very very bad roads (can be said as just paths not roads). Finally reached Tawang by around 4.30pm and checked in at Hotel Tawang Regency (I wouldn’t recommend this place and there was frequent power cuts throughout), arranged the passes for next day visit to Bumla pass through one of the guys there.
Next day morning was the time for the epic journey, Bomdila - Tawang stretch. Bumpy and treacherous, yet memorable and a lifetime sumo ride. It truly tests your patience, endurance and ability to gain and lose altitude at a short distance.From Bomdila at 8500 feet to driving along the Dirang river and again gaining altitude to cross over Sela at 13,700 feet, dropping altitude to cross over Tawang Chu and finally driving up to tawang town at 10,000 feet.
