And this is the only point of entry for Tawang and Bomdila. You need to be sure to pass Sela by 1:30pm to reach Tawang on time and safely.

Just for everyone to be aware, winter isn’t the best time to visit here as there is no heating system, and there are no concrete walls. It’s all tent, so it will get very cold. Until October end - November beginning can be a good time for visit.
