The road to Tawang through the Sela Pass is a beautiful but complex one. I can’t stress enough how much it’s about the journey and not the destination here.
You’ll be racing through bumpy winding roads, which reach up to 13,700 ft. through rain, ice, mud and snow.
You will gawp at the amazing Himalayan views, but won’t want to keep your eyes off the road, even if you’re not at the wheel.
There will be delays, struggles, tea houses and triumph as you try to reach Tawang…if you even make it at all. It took me two attempts to try and make it over the Sela Pass with Holiday Scout.
The first attempt was a gruelling 3 hour bumpy ride only to get stuck in the snow and have to head back down. But, thankfully, the second attempt was a success. But as a bonus, the snow storm had left the Sela Pass looking like a winter wonderland!
Despite the challenges, this car journey was one of my favourites. Not just for the views but for all the awesome places that we stopped off along the way.
Make sure you allow some time for a pitstop or two at these unbelievable places!
