Meghna Cave Temple
Nature and culture are the two words you will associate with this town that is located in Arunachal Pradesh. The Kamala Reserve Forest will take you a little bit closer to nature and the Good Shepherd Church and Meghna Cave Temple will take you a little bit closer to God! After a rafting session in the river Subansiri, you can indulge in a handicraft shopping. They make for great souvenirs!
The next day we drove to Daporijo (176 kms / 7 hrs) - land of Tagin and Hillmiris tribes of Arunachal Pradesh. The small town is endowed with scenic beauty. The suspension bridges over Subansiri River made from bamboo and cane is testimony of the rich tribal craftsmanship. Subansiri River is ideal for river rafting and that is exacty what we did.

Tawang has always been in the midst of conflict and controversy. But if you look beyond the controversy, you'll discover beauty incomparable to any other. Tawang is well connected from Tezpur by air and rail and summer is the best time to visit and plan a holiday. The major tourist attraction here is the Twang Monastery, which is celebrated as the birth place of the 6th Dala Lama. Besides the monastery, the Sela Pass and Jang Waterfalls are also touristy places and should definitely be a part of your itinerary. The Penga Teng Tso Lake is frozen for 5 months in a year, but makes for a wonderful sight all through. Do book a cab to visit the lake since the roads are a little tricky and are best managed by a local. Tawang is especially colourful in February when the Monpas, the native tribe, celebrate the Losar Festival (Tibetan New Year) and it really is a great time to be here. For foreign nationals, special permission is required to visit Tawang so do have all your papers in order. Before planning a holiday to Tawang, it's wise to research and also build contacts with the locals there to discover all the wonderful secrets of this splendid district!
