Finally to the adrenaline part of this trip. The sela pass is teh second highest motorable pass in the world. Time for some adventure travel. Situated on an altitude of 14000 ft, this drive is scary and gorgeous. Sela pass is a great way to enter Tawang to Guwahati. In fact, this is the only road that connects Tawang to the rest of the country. The pass takes you through lakes, monasteries, mountains, valleys, meadows and all there is to the Himalayas. It is literally a ride through the Himalayan beauties. Some consider the road a bit scary to drive on but, I couldn't et enough of the view to divert my attention anywhere else.

Its a China border from where you see the Chinese highway and the peaks. Go for the drive if not for anything else.

About Arunachal Pradesh

With hills that are impossible to climb and forests so dense that sunlight is a luxury, Arunachal has continued to fascinate tourists and travellers alike.Famous for: Buddhist monasteries and the Ziro Festival.Places to Visit: Ziro Valley (the most secluded music festival in India), Tawang Monastery (a beautiful Buddhist monastery located 10,000 feet above sea level), Sela Pass (for frozen lakes and unexplored trails).Things to Do: Indulge in white water rafting on the Kameng River. Enjoy birdwatching in Sangti Valley.Food: Like the other seven sisters of India, rice is the staple diet here as well. Take ample sips of apong, a beer made of rice, to wash down you meal. Also try pika pila, a local pickle made from bamboo shoots.Climate: 15-20 degrees Celsius in winters. 32-40 degrees Celsius in summers.Best Time to Visit: October to March.Average Expenditure Per Head (excluding flights): Rs. 12,000 for 5 days.How to reach: The state doesn't have a major airport yet, but it's still well connected via flights.
