"There is more joy in journey than there is in destination."
It is an arduous affair reaching Tawang. And believe me when I say arduous, We all know spontaneous plans are the ones that actually work out. Cause after months of planning a Goa trip, booking and cancellation of tickets, a lot of major disappointments, I ended up going to the resplendent land of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh. Having heard and read a lot about the seven sisters, I was surprised at all that I went through. All of it. No article or picture can ever do justice to what one experiences. My first big shocker after booking the flight tickets from Kolkata to Tezpur was that I needed a permit to visit Arunachal Pradesh.
"Umm, hello? Indian here."
But I still needed a permit. Which is not that difficult to get but I had to research a bit as there is no clear guideline as to what the 'Local reference' means while applying for a permit online. Well, basically what I did was put a hotel in Tawang as the reference. Apart from that, it is a smooth process.
It is an arduous affair reaching Tawang. And believe me when I say arduous, I mean it.
