Where to stay in Tawang

Look around the market for the best range of accommodations in Tawang. Although the town remains largely undeveloped, with limited amenities and creature comforts, you can find small guesthouses and inns run by friendly locals, many of whom will offer home-cooked food during your stay. While these accommodations remain basic, they more than make up for their shortcomings with true Himalayan hospitality, striking a perfect balance for low-budget hikers. Try to find a top-floor room to enjoy the best views out over the surrounding mountains.

  • What a great soldier no words to praise or pray .We became speechless for sometime after knowing the one man army. Our army is maintaining his house as if he is alive and doing his duty. We too felt the same.near the ghar refreshments are provided by army to the tourists.we can view the valley from view point
  • Jaswant Garh is famous for our brave soldier Jaswant Singh .He was a great fighter during Indo China war.
  • Jaswant Singh Rawat ( 19 August 1941 - 17 November 1962) was an Indian rifleman soldier of 4 Garhwal Rifles, Uttarakhand who won the Maha Vir Chakra posthumously at the Battle of Nuranang in the present day Arunachal Pradesh during the 1962 India-China war. He was born on 19 August 1941 to Shri Guman Singh Rawat, at village Baryun, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. Present Day his family is living in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. The exemplary bravery shown by Jaswant Rawat was honored by building a memorial at the post where he fought the Chinese army. The post which he held against the Chinese Army was named as Jaswant Garh. Another honor bestowed upon him is that he continues in the service even after death, he has been awarded promotions as if he is still serving the Nation
  • Beautiful location with beautiful view in the lap of army man Shri Jaswant
  • Proud moment to hear the story and the army is so accommodating and serve free tea/coffee to all passing through this place. There is a view point from where the valley can be seen. Will find a lot of yaks here.
