About Zemithang

Tawang to ZemithangDistance: 190 km(round)Overnight: TawangToday, we made a day trip to Zemithang and drove up to Bhutan and Tibet border. Zemithang is the most offbeat location tucked away in a remote corner of Arunachal Pradesh bordered by Tibet on one side and Bhutan on another. The 14th Dalai Lama is reported to have escaped in March 1959 through the same route from Tibet to Tawang via Zemithang. As a result, the Buddhists considers the escaped road as the most sacred one and is most noteworthy in the Buddhist community.Stop 1: Lumla VillageLumla village which is 45 kms from Tawang(on the midway to Zemithang) is famous for the great Tara Devi Temple. Tara - the female Buddha is also known as the mother of liberation. The location of the statue is its greatest advantage. One can see Bhutan from one side and Tibet from the other.Stop 2: BTK WaterfallBap Teng Kang Waterfall is situated 20 km before Zeminthang. This 100ft tall waterfall can be seen from the road.Stop 3: Gorsam StupaGorsam Stupa located 5 km before Zemithang is the replica of "The Boudhanath of Nepal", the other replica being Chorten Kora in Bhutan. There is no written history and no one knows the exact date it was built. According to the locals: Lama Sangye Pradhar(Monpa), who supposedly built this 100ft stupa traveled to Kathmandu Nepal and secretly carved a miniature model of the Nepalese Boudhanath using radish/carrot. He constructed this isolated Gem after he secretly brought that carrot back to Zemithang.So many unnamed stops:The entire Zeminthang village has a glorious view every mile, we parked the car in the middle of the road as there were no tourists around, which shows how unexplored is this Arunachal hidden paradise.
