Bum la pass is the international boundary between India and China, where the flag meet takes place. To go there permissions are required from District Administrative Office by submitting documents of our vehicles. Easiest way is to hire a cab and its driver will take care of all formalities and take you to the border. There are numerous lakes on the way, and since I went in retreating winter, all the lakes were still frozen. The winter also delineated the harshest conditions where our soldiers defend our country. The Bumla pass, indeed, is a sight to behold. The strategic international boundary will give goosebumps to every Imdian, and one couldn't resist shouting"Bharat mata ki jai" !
Back from the Bum la pass, I booked my return taxi for the next day. Tawang and its lovely people would fill every traveller's soul. Happy travelling!:-)
With love, from Tawang.
