  3. Ziro (Arunachal Pradesh)
  4. Pasighat (Arunachal Pradesh)
  5. Arunachal Pradesh

HolidayIQ Traveller Nilesh Deshpandey says, “A visit to Tawang is incomplete without the visit to Tawang Monastery. This is one of the largest monasteries in Asia.” HolidayIQ Traveller Sundar Ganesaan says, "Tawang Monastery is the second biggest in the world and is a major tourist attraction. The 6th Dalai Lama was born in Tawang and all these monasteries are called as gompas, which have a 5-coloured flag hoisted in front of them."

2. Take A Walk In The Clouds At Bomdila

HolidayIQ Traveller Sushil Kannan shares, “It is said the path to heavens is rough. True! When you want to go to Bomdila, the travel from Guwahati to Bomdila is rough and tough. But once you reach this place you forget all the troubles, bad road, pathetic food etc. Fond of Buddhism or not, the monasteries give you so much mental peace that you would always return back to work fresh with good and heavenly thoughts. Sight of Chinese infrastructure across the horizon might pain some but the mountain amazes you more than anything else. But don't forget that these are tough places to stay and our soldiers stay in these tough conditions to take care of all of us.”

3. Get Soaked In The Picturesque Beauty Of Ziro

HolidayIQ Traveller Babita from Kalimpong says, “The cave temple in Ziro is a must visit. It is gorgeous with majestic mountains and river flowing below. It is a nature lover's delight.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Nabajit Paul, “The weather is quite moderate. Perfect place for outdoors.”

4. Discover Nature In Valleys Of Pasighat

HolidayIQ Traveller Sunil Chaurasia shares, “Nuranang waterfalls lies in between Tawang and Bomdila road. This waterfall is magnificent and is about 100m high. This waterfall is also known as Jang Waterfalls as it is located in a place named Jang.One can have a very close view of this waterfall as it is too close from the viewpoint(around 200m ;I guess). I visited here during the monsoon period when it was in its full glory, and had plenty of water. According to our car driver cum guide this waterfall originates from the Sela peak and falls into the Tawang river. There is a Hydropower Plant which generates electricity from the waterfall for local use. One can enjoy River Rafting during favorable seasons. One willing to see this place needs to take a private vehicle(in fact shared sightseeing is not available in Tawang).”

6. The Walong Bridge Is A Perfect Man-Made Wonder

The charisma of this bridge will fill your heart with passion. It perfectly bridges the gap between natural beauty and man-made wonders.

7. Get An Adrenaline Rush Scaling The Ice-Covered Gorichen Peak

HolidayIQ Traveller Raktim says, “It is one of the highest peaks in Arunachal. It will make you feel close to nature.” Gorichen Peak is the right place for the adventurer in you. Not only is Gorichen Peak the highest in Arunachal Pradesh at a height of 22,500 feet but it also poses a high challenge to trekkers. The gorgeous Gorichen Peak offers magnificent views. Whether you scale the heights or not, you are sure to enjoy the matchless beauty of the majestic peak.

8. Go Local! Shopping In Itanagar

HolidayIQ Traveller Rakesh Kumar shares, “Nice entry point for those who want to visit Arunachal, which is full of Beautiful Places in mountains. The main attractions of Itanagar are a) Ganga Lake b) Ita fort, c) Buddhist Gonpa, d) Museum. Adventure wise people can peep into Jungle with the help of local Nyishi Tribals. Development of tourism areas near Doimukh, Nirjuli, Naharlagun areas is in its very elementary stage. Best time to visit Itanagar is during February when NYUKUM festival of Nyishis and Losar Festival of Monpas are celebrated. The local rice wine called apong can be tried. Food made in Bamboo utensils and vegetables and meat cooked with Bamboo shoot are something that can be tried. Akashdeep Shopping complex and market of Naharlagun are the best places to do shopping in Itanagar. But the cost of commodity is somewhat higher.”

10. Drive Through The Mystical Motorable Sela Pass

HolidayIQ Traveller Subhjit Dinda says, “It falls on the road to Tawang. Watch it at whichever time of day and you'll enjoy it. In the evening, it gives an eerie atmosphere with the cold wind blowing. In the morning, it is serene like Buddha himself and when the sun shines, it is a picture perfect postcard that you want to keep with you forever.” You will find Paradise Lake on your way to Sela Pass. The lake, for the most part, is frozen during winter.
