Why travel Tawang?

Tawang is a district as well as a town in western Arunachal Pradesh. The town is located at an altitude of 11,500 ft at the extreme North West corner of Arunachal Pradesh surrounded in three sides by Bhutan and China. This makes Tawang difficult to reach. But the visitors are well rewarded with the grand views of the alpine mountains surrounding Tawang.

Apart from the grand mountain and lakes that create an extremely beautiful background for the town, Tawang is also famous for the 17th century Tawang Monastery which is the second largest in Asia and also one of the most beautiful. The local tribe “Monpa” are well known for their friendly smile and the headgear they wear.
