Bomdila Info

  • State: Arunachal Pradesh
  • Famous for/as: Hill
Bomdila, is a small town located in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh. Located at an altitude of about 2217 metres above sea level, Bomdila is renowned for its Buddhist monasteries and apple orchards.

In medieval times, Bomdila had been a part of the kingdom of Tibet where it was ruled by the local tribal rulers of Bhutan. The Ahom rulers of Assam never interfered with these local tribes except in case of retaliatory raids. In 1873, the British banned the entry in this area of Arunachal Pradesh.

After India gained independence in 1947, there has been constant disagreement on this area between India and China. In 1962, China invaded the area around Bomdila, but later withdrew its troops from there.

This small town is famous for Buddhist Gompas and the magnificent view of the Kameng Valley. The view of clouds gathering at the top of the Nechipu Pass can be easily seen from the highest point of this place. The area is also home to the Kangto and Gorichan peaks, which are considered as the highest peaks in the state.

Residents here generally belong to the Monpa and Sherdukpen Tribes. The people here speak different languages like Monpa, Sherdukpen, Miji, Aka, Hindi, Assamese and English. Monpa folk songs and music form an integral part of the Losar festival celebrated there. Thangka wall hangings, paintings, masks and dragon carpets are some of the specialities of this place.

The best time to visit Bomdila is between April and October, during which the temperature remains mild, rarely going above 32 Celsius.
