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.

Tawang
This lake was formed during the earthquake of 1950. Situated in the Eastern Himalayas, this lake is considered to be holy by the Buddhists. The lake is also known as Madhuri lake, after a famous song from a Bollywood film starring the Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit was shot here. We enjoyed the sight of the lake nestled in the mountains.. It was also really cold and windy but the weather just added to the fresh beauty of the place. This is one of the few remotest high altitude lakes in the area and is quite close to the border of China. Since the lake is sacred to the Buddhists of India as well as Tibet, both come here on pre-defined days. The lake is quite a beauty though.

Weekend Getaways from Urgelling  

We chose to arrive in Lhasa by travelling on the world’s highest railway, a journey of breath-taking beauty that lasts 24 hours from the Chinese city of Xining, and crosses the Tanggula Passat 5072m. Arriving late at night, we were greeted by our guide in Lhasa with khatags, the white silk ceremonial scarf that is commonly given in Tibet as a sign of welcome. This was the first of many khatags we received. Lhasa literally means 'The abode of the gods'.


About Urgelling

Tawang is also of major religious significance since the 6th Dalai Lama was born here. A small shrine, known as the Urgelling gompa, is built here to venerate this holy ground. On the lawns I finally got a chance to interact with some people of the Monpa tribe. We could only speak the universal language of a smile, but it was evident that they were as curious and intrigued about me as I was about them.
