Guwahati - Tawang - Pangsu pass - Anini - Majuli - Dawki- Guwahati

Recommended Posts

Day 1:

Started on 13-11-2019 from guwahati at 5:30 am to Tawang reached at 7:30 pm same day, most people don't do, even i took the route where no one dared to go i.e Phadung Road from kalakthang, Most of ppl drive / ride towards bomdila from kalkthang

Route taken Guwahati- bhairabkund-kalkthang-phadung-mandala-dirang -sela pass- tawang.

I may be¬†stupid/ crazy to do this adventures road, saw many wild animals Elephants, deers similar to sambhars, yaks, horses (20-30) & jackals but no tigers or cheetahsūüė≠.¬†from kalkthang to Mandala 95% riding alone¬†no incoming or outgoing vehicles, hardly saw a truck and maruthi alto, its a mixed roads from single lane with beautiful tarmac - single lane with no road similar to spiti - no roads at all choose ur own path as many roads r in parallel to you, google offline maps help u out somepart. BSNL & Airtel works some parts but JIO is dead end.

The moment i was into sela pass snow fall / drizzle dont know as i haven't got wet but its a continuous pour, very chilled and voyager doesn't allowed me to see ahead, balclawa played its role here. hard times got helped out by innova crysta just followed it blankly, luckily nothing happened till i reach Tawang, Later on return journey i saw the treacherous route as its. Booked hotel once after reaching Tawang as I dont have any idea of where i am going to be get halted for the night. 

Zambhala Hotel - Average in comparison, hot water, food and ample parking available costed me Rs 1000/- stayed for 3 days.

Day 2 :

Due to mytri diwas celebrating in tawang, bumla pass permits r not issuing as Defence Minister Rajnath Singh coming for 15 mins, stopped all permits 2 days before and after his arrival and when asked some military persons does he go by road to that place they said no, then why his reply terrorists may attack and u can also be one of them....Funny.....

Decided to ztry my luck from Zamithang route.

Reached till the last check post to enter Zemithang but Military personal stopped and said same story u can also be a Terrorist....I cant say anything there but maniman me .....saala hotha tho abhi tereko blast kardetha tha.....any how i respect the military ppl guarding our border at the same time i curse those officers who does these shit allowing their kith and kin for all these routes whatever and whenever they want.

Met with Few Government officers who are working for Upliftment of local people health, those who were least bothered eg: physically handicapped, they will go to every village and get details of the people needed help and also financing them for their livelihood. Even these officers were not allowed to visit Zemithang and through some higher official phone calls they got chance to peep into, If I could have reached 2 hrs earlier then got a chance to visit the China - Bhutan - India border

 

Few clicks I made between this route and visited one of the famous temples u can see only in Nepal the biggest one, next this one and finally at Bhutan the third.

Roads are very nice anyone can reach Tawang to Zamithang in 3-4 Hrs depend upon ur break times. i lost my mobile charger and went for market to buy one, remember one thing in tawang market routes are one way and parking is difficult to get in peak hours. You can get all the stuff u need from medicines, electronics etc etc and liquor shops are there every 20-30 ft .
