State Highway Arunachal, Arunachal, Tawang
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.

One of the soldiers told us about how the post operates and how the army has been safe guarding the place even in the most adverse conditions. His words gave us goose bumps. We then spent some time around and then rested for a while. After having spent nearly an hour, we trekked down to our car. We then headed for Sangetsar Lake. Sangetsar Lake was formed after an earthquake and is located at around 12,500 ft. The most amazing thing about this lake was the tree trunks that stood out of the water in the middle of it. The lake was semi-frozen and the view was very soothing. The driver asked us to not linger for too long as he wanted to avoid snow fall on the way back. We also stopped at the PT TSO Lake, one of the many other lakes which dotted Bum La. We came across some other tourists there, who were playing in snow and joined them. We then took some snaps and then finally headed back to Tawang.

About Tawang

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!
