Tawang was the ultimate culture trip.
Not only do you get an unbeatable sense of achievement when you finally make it over the treacherous Sela Pass, you have this overwhelming wonderment wherever you go in this awe-inspiring Himalayan town.
Your jaw will drop at the peaks of the snow-capped mountains, the colours in the Buddhist monks robes and temples, the presence in the statues of Buddha.
The endless hospitality of the locals and the cuteness of the yaks (okay, maybe that’s just me!).
Arunachal Pradesh is one of the least visited states in India for tourism but I find this fact unbelievable. It’s literally Nirvana.
My little slice of heaven and it’s so unlike the rest of India. It’s fresh, untouched, pure.
It’s the perfect oasis for a getaway. So, I wanna shout about it! Here’s a list of stunning Tawang photos for your visit!
Where is Tawang in North East India?
Tawang and the district of Tawang are hidden away in Arunachal Pradesh in North East India. So, it’s no wonder you’re wanting to see some Tawang photos before you visit.
Sandwiched in between Bhutan and South Tibet (China), it has an amazing mix of cultures and traditions that are waiting for you!
As a foreign tourist, you will need to gain a Protected Area Permit (PAP) to enter the state of Arunachal Pradesh itself. For Indian tourists, you will need an (ILP) Inner Line Permit for your visit.
For tours of Arunachal Pradesh, I would highly recommend Holiday Scout.
Not only is the founder, Sage Tsering, voted one of the top 50 people to know in the Himalayas by Condé Nast Traveller, but he’s also extremely passionate and knowledgeable about this part of the world.
