If you’re a fan of hiking at high altitudes, visiting Sela Pass is just for you, since it’s 4,175 m (13,700 ft) above sea level, among the snowy mountains, away from civilization and cities. See the lake close to the pass, and experience the views of the immensely large landscape. If you wish to warm up, there’s a pleasant cafe that offers all kinds of beverages, as well as warm meals. When going back, go slowly and take care of your breathing because of the extremely thin air. Arrange to visit Sela Pass and other attractions in Tawang using our Tawang tourist route planner.

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.
