I am still in awe of the grandeur and aura of the Chillipam monastery,  close by Tenga , a small village in Arunachal Pradesh.
While travelling from Guwahati to Tenga , the journey is breathtaking and an education in itself.
The journey across the plains , along the basin of mighty Brahmaputra is very smooth and one gets to witness vast paddy fields and coconut trees.
The journey after Balukpong is really beautiful,  but as we head towards Nechiphu, the road becomes narrow, but as we reach Tenga, the whole journey becomes worth it.
Tenga is a small village with small market , and with a nice spot to chill out called Tenga haat with Tenga river flowing along side.
But beyond Tenga , Chillipam monastery is the closest as we cross the town of Rupa.
Going slow and steady on the hills ,with in 45 minutes we reach the monastery.
It is one of the most beautiful Buddhist Monastry in the world,  I would say.
Located at a hill top, surrounded by the mountains on all sides.
Once we reach the monastry,  one gets to witness a complete riot of colours.
The monastry also houses the  school for young Lamas.
It is a beautiful,  isolated, peaceful and an ornately designed Gompa with its irresistible charm, vibrant and bright colours.
Worth visiting
Happy Travelling
