About tawang

Nestled in the Himalayas, Tawang is a charming little hill station in Arunachal Pradesh and is considered to be one of the most visited tourist destinations of Northeast India. With a rich culture and history, Tawang houses India’s largest monastery and is a revered destination among Buddhists. In and around the Tawang town, unexplored hiking trails with pine groves and rhododendrons abound. If one travels from Bhalukpong to Tawang, the picturesque town of Bomdila, Tenga Valley or the bewitching Dirang Valley are beautiful stopovers. The places to visit on the way to Tawang include the famous Sela Pass along with Jang and Jaswantgarh en route, where one can take a view of the splendid Nuranang Waterfalls, hot spring, Jaswantgarh War Memorial and the serene lake in Sela Pass.\r\n\r\nSightseeing in Tawang includes the Tawang Gompa (monastery), Urgelling Monastery, PTSO Lake, Madhuri Lake, War Memorial, that narrates the tragedy of Sino-Indian war and the Bumla Pass, where the McMahon Line separates India and China. The serenity of this town is soothing, while in winters, the snow-covered land provides skiing opportunities.
