Tawang - 9 Days

View Tawang

Overview

This is going to be an incredible road trip into the heart of Arunachal Pradesh. This trip will see us drive through the mountains, run into rivers, get wet in rivers, hike a bit and see hundreds of birds, and see yaks all over the mountainside.
And as we go higher, and get closer to Sela Pass and Tawang, we might see some snow. We are also going to Bum La Pass, near the China border, some beautiful crystal clear lakes, and the stunning Jung waterfalls!
At night, we are going to sit around bonfires, and see the thousands of stars shining all around us. In our last trip to Tawang, we were seeing stars every minute, the sky was so clear!!!
This is going to be one trip you shan’t forget soon.
