Day 1

Reached Kolkata from hyderabad. Went to SP, Siva Prasad. Ate momos which are fried and worst ones.  Don't try fried momos ever at Kolkata Airport.  Chai opposite to Kolkata Airport tasty and just for five rupees.

Day 2

Reached Gawhati transit from Agartala. There is a lafoot hotel,  MAMA hotel, unhygienic food, atmosphere in Agartala Airport.  I have given review for the hotel also.

Day 3 is real start for the bike ride. Started from Gawhati at 8:00 after having breakfast in Chennai Kitchen. Idly, Dosa is good here.

Had lunch in the midway to Tezpur. While having lunch we met two telugu guys who are working in Roads construction.

We had a friendly talk with Biswajit.  Had dinner Momoi hotel which appeared to be worst hotel but food is tastier.  After that we went to bike repairing.  On the way back to homestay Biswajit took us in his car to buy some extra clothes, sightseeing in Tezpur like river, Ganesh temple because of which he says River level doesn't grow higher than the temple.

Slept for the day.

Day 6

We started from Tawang to Bumla Pass.
Talked to Army personnel there.  Reached back to Bumla Inn at 8 pm.  We had the breakfast  of Aloo paratha and helmet is broken because of recklessness. We started from Tawang at 11:30am and reached Bumla Pass at 1:30pm

Our plan was to cover the Shingester Lake, aka madhuri Lake. Because a song from Koyla was shot on Madhuri Dixit. So entire Tawang people call is as "Madhuri Lake". 

On our way to back to Y junction, we reached Y junction at 3:45pm.  When we checked with army personnel there if we can go to Madhuri Lake they said it's not advisable to go now because the road is much worse than the road to Bumla Pass and also it getting dark. On top of that, it gets very cold once sun sets.  So we decided against going.

There was a telugu person from Amy personnel, Narsimha Raju.  He offered hot team and tea with biscuits.  They were so kind that they asked us to near stove to get ourselves warm.

He also suggested to have lunch nearby Army Canteen. We went there to have lunch and also bought army clothes
