Experience the unexplored, awe-inspiring charm of Arunachal Pradesh in this quaint hill-town. Understand the Tibetan-Buddhist elements that influence the culture, food and lifestyle here, granting it an absolutely unique flavour. A trekker's delight, Tawang will simply steal your heart away.
One of the lesser known destinations in India, this Arunachal beauty offers its visitors the best of India's North East, be it in hospitality, mind blowing locales or an unbelievably tranquil experience. Located at a height from Tawang is the serene P.T.Tso Lake, which remains frozen for 4 to 5 months in a year. Tawang offers a unique experience for skilled and amateur trekkers, with different trekking trails for each level of difficulty. Those with a brave heart and a strong stomach for fiery food must try the traditional Monpa cuisine, among the other Tibetan delights, that are on offer. Be sure to take an official permit, for internal security, to visit this delightful town, unexplored and completely hidden from the eyes of the general tourist crowd.

High up in the north-west corner of Arunachal that juts into Bhutan, and shouldered by China (Tibet), Tawang has mostly been remembered only in times of war. In its vicinity a pitched battle was fought during the Indo-Chinese War of 1962. Somewhere here the 14th Dalai Lama and his entourage crossed over quietly into India from Tibet in 1959, taking an impossibly arduous route. Further back, in the 17th century — a period of harsh rivalry between various Buddhist sects — lore has it that one Meera Lama built a fortress here to protect the monks of his Gelugpa creed. Today it is known as Tawang Monastery. Explore the Buddhist influences on the local lifestyle in Tawang in the this monastery, also famed for being the birthplace of the 6th Dalai Lama.

"Land of ADVENTURE."
reviewed on Jun 23 2014
Your extremely course to this 11,155 ft slope station - Tawang, will indicate you about what's in store. Picture postcard painted scenes chipped with sporty hued religious communities (Gompas) and the sound of thundering waterfalls and boiling hot water springs solidify your faculties and you will need to shake your head to remind yourself, "This is genuine"! The vainglorious of the horde orchids and the warmth of the neighborhood Monpa tribes help you ward off the bone-desensitizing breeze of the Himalayas. God, the Himalayas and the committed jawans (armed force men) remained as unafraid sentinels ensuring this area from the Chinese and stink eye. Tawang Monastery : 'Drastically laid out' against the verdant scene is the 400 years of age Galden Namgyal Lhatse, famous with the vacationer tongue as the Tawang cloister. Other than its really popular collection gold lettered Buddhist scriptures, pictures, embroidered works of art and the uncommon transcribed and piece painted thankas or original copies of worshipped books (in the Parkhang Hall), it is held critical in the Mahayana Buddhist world for the 26-ft high overlaid Buddha housed in its internal sanctum over headed by a wall painting rich roof. The name of Tawang signifies "horse picked", a reference to the path in which Meera Lama's steed meandered off on its own and ran across the ideal spot on which the cloister now stands.
