Sightseeing in Arunachal Pradesh

If the mountains beckon you, you must head for a sightseeing tour to Bomdila and Tawang. At an altitude of 8500 ft, the Himalayan landscape of Bomdila is snowclad for most of the year. The apple orchards and the Buddhist "Gompas" are an added attraction. It is possible to charter a plane from Lilabari to Bomdila as there is a small airstrip there. Or one could use the road route. Be sure to carry carry woollens. From Bomdila, take the mountainous road up to Tawang at 12000 ft. On the way, you’ll drive past the Sela Pass, the second highest pass in the world.

Tawang has a 400-year-old Buddhist monastery, which has an 8ft statue of the Buddha and ancient Buddhists scriptures inscribed in gold. Itanagar, the capital city of Arunachal Pradesh, is famous for the excavated ruins of the historical Ita Fort and the Ganga Sekhi Lake. One of the places to see in Arunachal Pradesh is the Ita fort which was made of bricks and parts of it still stand. The Ganga Sekhi Lake, 6km from Itanagar, is a picturesque picnic spot at the base of a red clay hill accessible by a curious bamboo bridge spanning a small culvert.

The wildlife sanctuary at Namdapha is renowned for the four cats - snow leopard, clouded leopard, tiger and the leopard. Home to the rare "hoolok gibbon", it is spread over an amazing range of altitude from 200m to 4500m. It is accessible by road from Tezpur (Assam) and the best time to visit is between October and April.
