Overview


The Tawang bike expedition is the holy grail for bikers in India, the route being so raw and rugged even visitors from around the world come and have a go at it. It takes a certain level of madness and a thing for adventure to rev a bike and go through this route through the “land of dawn-lit mountains”.

We start our 7-night 8 days Bike expedition to Tawang from Guwahati. Guwahati is known as  'the city of Eastern Light' and it stands on the southern banks of the mighty river Brahmaputra. It is the capital of Assam and the gateway to the entire northeastern states. It is surrounded by hills and the Brahmaputra river, and rich and diverse flora and fauna enhance its natural scenic beauty.

Dirang is a village in Arunachal Pradesh which lies in the West Kameng district. It is situated on the banks of the Jia Bharali river at an altitude of 4900 ft. While in Dirang, you can take a walk through the peaceful village and take in the beautiful and serene environment.

Singstar Tso or the PTSO Lake is one of the highest altitude lakes in India at an altitude of 15,200ft. It is located on the way from Tawang to Bumla Pass. The Bum La Pass is located about 37 km away from Tawang, at the Indo-China border above 16,500 ft above sea level. The roads are mostly covered with snow. The road to Bum La is also a historical route; here in Bum La Pass one of the fiercest battles took place in the 1962 Sino-Indian War.

Next in our bike and backpacking expedition is Tawang, which lies at an elevation of 10,000ft. Tawang has an unmatched natural beauty that will leave you awestruck and of the iconic places to visit in Tawang is Tawang Monastery, which is the largest monastery in India.

Thembang Heritage Village is one of the unique villages which has been identified by UNESCO as a World heritage site village. Here you are going to have an experience of proper traditional Monpa Houses built of stones.

The ideal time to visit Arunachal Pradesh would be during summers i.e. April to June when the valley comes alive with wildflowers and greenery and the weather is pleasant. If you want to experience Arunachal Pradesh during winter, October to February is the best time to experience snow-covered landscapes and mountains.
