On day one, you will start on the journey northwards, with the first stop at Nameri. Famous for the Nameri National Park, you will be staying in an Eco camp. The day is at leisure. Located near the Jia Bhorelli River, one can take leisure walks by the river.
Jia Bhorelli River is excellent for rafting so those interested can go on adrenalin pumping rafting session in the river. Post breakfast you will leave for Dirang, which is a 3.5 Hour journey .Settle into the stay, and adjust to the slow mountain life, of this remote hamlet. You can also go for a walk through the hamlet, apple farms and kiwi farms as the way will greet us. A short hike to the Dirang Dzong will give you a glimpse of the local life of this town.
Go for a drive 10kms from Dirang to the gorgeous Sangti Valley. Home to the black neck cranes in winter, it is a beautiful spot for a mountain hike. A picnic will be organized here. Local sites like Old Dirang and the Kalachakra gompa are beautiful sights to look out for.
Start early to head out to Tawang via the Sela Pass. One of the highest motorable roads in the world, the Sela is sacred to the Buddhists. Very close by is the pristine Sela Lake. A definite stop over on this road journey, before you head northwards to Tawang. On reaching the town, we settle into our stays. Local hikes and cafes are on the menu for the day. But soaking in the feel of this beautiful high altitude town offering beautiful vistas of high mountain peaks, misty rivers and lush valleys is the idea of this day.
This day is at leisure where you can explore Tawang. Tawang Monastery is legendary in its beauty. It’s the largest Buddhist monastery in India and the second largest in Asia. It’s an important seat of the Mahayana Buddhists and overlooks 18gompas of the region. Its 400 years old and at any given time houses about 450 monks and is must watch on a trip to A.P.
For those keen on visiting the beautiful Sangetsar Lake and BumLa pass, a separate car can be arranged. Post breakfast; head out to the breathtaking lake, which was formed after an earthquake in 1971. Prior to that it was the grazing ground for cattle for the locals. The lake is surrounded by snow-capped peaks and makes for a great sight for nature lovers. Post that we travel to BumLa Pass, which at 16000ft is quite a task. Dalai Lama used the Pass to escape from Tibet to India. It was also the area from where the Chinese attached us during the Indo-China war of 72. BumLa right now, is one of the four agreed upon spots where the army of India and China meet to diffuse any tension to avoid face offs. The others being in Ladakh, Sikkim and Uttarakhand.
There are a heap of stones where people pay their respect to appease the God’s of the Himalayas. For those who believe in the mystical, that’s a spot to stop at.
Note that visit to Bumla Pass is subject to weather conditions. This is an optional day trip so a separate car will be arranged for those interested in travelling to Bumla Pass. The car cost is between Rs. 5000-5500 which can be paid on the spot and split between those travelling.
An early morning breakfast will ensure that you reach the culturally rich Thembang village by lunch time. We live in a home stay and experience the Monpa way of life. The Monpas have conserved their heritage and have now realized that conservation is a great way to boost their economy. Simple homestays which give you a peek into the lives of these tribesmen of the East Himalayan hamlet. Tucked away in Arunachal, their village is fortified and has two entry and exit points in their stone walls, like the villages we read of in Asterix stories. A local village walk, a peek into their means of livelihood and sharing a meal with them is the plan for the day.
Welcome back to Nameri at your lovely resort. Relax here after your long journey.
