Gateway to Tawang

This is a hill station in Arunachal Pradesh. This is scenically beautiful and green place in Arunachal. Stay overnight in this District maybe for a day or two to enjoy the places to visit completely. This hill station has a lot of things to offer including a pure stay away from the busy life in metro cities.

Too far too risky

It was rainy season of 2012 I travelled by road to Bomdila from Guwahaty
It was a usv strong enough to carry me there. In Financial one has to pass through chek gates and waiting line is too big After waiting for two hours we started for Bomdila. Beautiful hills and cool air of morning was giving us a pleasant feeling but small ditches and broken road was hampering the speed. And then come land slide and again wait for hours to start our journey. No rest House or no eatety on the way just enjoy air and drink water. We started at 4and reached at two o clock. It is a small neat town. With chinede decoration and pro cahina feeling since 1962. They do not like indian administration. They want fast progress like chaina.
Again we had to rush back before 8pm the close the exit.
So again bad journey norest and only silence to enjoy. Yes but coke pepsy and uncle chips were sold on road.
Hotels were oridinary and expensive food was more chines

Bomdila Overview

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.
