Tawang blew my mind.
I couldn’t believe I was still standing in India, let alone this century! Tawang is the definition of tradition and cultural values still well and truly alive today. In the 21st century, it’s so easy to forget the world outside of our phones and social networks. But, here, you’ll forget all that in this Himalayan haven, there’s far too much to see.
Tawang is sandwiched between South Tibet (China) and Bhutan, so it’s an amazing mix of cultures, religion, temples, food and people. Although I only spent a few days here, what I did experience was on another level of culture trip.
Tibetan Buddhist temples, monks and nun’s, Monpa tribes, fluffy puppies, cuddly yaks, prayer wheels, chai and Himalayan mountains are all here waiting for you.
