Tawang and Nameri National Park Tour
[7 Days]

Nameri National Park and Tawang Tour [ 7 Days ]

One week is a great time to go on a trip to Nameri and Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh. The first leg of this Nameri Tawang tour takes you from the city of Guwahati to the Nameri National Park and its lush green and deep woods, on the banks of the mighty Jia Bhoreli river, not far from Bhalukpong. Many species of birds and animals can be found in the Nameri National park, some native while some who migrate from thousands of kilometers away, every year. From there, you then enter Arunachal Pradesh as this Tawang – Nameri tour starts ascending into a totally different part of North East India, to the land of the tribes.

Day 1 – Guwahati To Nameri

Start early from Guwahati, for the Nameri Wildlife Sanctuary. Once there, you can choose to go for a jungle walk. River rafting in Nameri is also one of the most exciting things to do, during the winter months.

Day 2 – Nameri To Dirang

We start from the Nameri in the morning after you have had a peaceful and fresh morning walk in the jungle. Drive along the Kameng River as you leave the plains of Assam and start ascending the mountains of Arunachal Pradesh via Bhalukpong. Enjoy the beautiful drive. Halt at a lovely little town Dirang, overlooking two mountain rivers, for the night.

Day 3 – Local Tawang Tour: Things to see in Tawang

We start our day by visiting the largest monastery in the world, the Tawang monastery. We explore the place at our own pace before heading to the Urgeling monastery, the birthplace of the 6th Dalai Lama and the Ani Gompa. In the evening, we visit the war memorial and experience the light and sound show there.

Day 4  – Dirang To Tawang

We start for Tawang today and en route stop at Nyukmadung war memorial and pay our respects to the fallen soldiers there. Next, we stop at the mighty Sela Pass and soak in the gorgeous views of the surroundings. We visit & pay our respect to the war memorial there and then warm ourselves with piping-hot tea at the army canteen there before we resume our onward journey. We stop for a small stroll by the lovely Sela Lake if time permits and then start for our next stop, the Nuranang waterfall, the sheer grandness of which is sure to make your jaws drop. We reach our homestay in Tawang by late evening and call it a day.

Day 5  – Tawang To PT Tso To Madhuri lake To Bum la

We start early today to explore the beautiful lakes and valleys at the higher reaches of the region. On our way to our first stop, the Penga Teng Tso, we drive through what was once the battlefield. The scars of the war can be seen scattered all around. From there we head to the uniquely beautiful Sungester Lake, also known as the Madhuri lake of Koyla (the Bollywood movie) fame. Finally, we head towards the India-China border at Bum-la and spend some time at the border before starting our return journey to Tawang.

Day 6  – Tawang To Bomdila

We drive down to the Buddhist town of Dirang/Bomdilla today, taking the same road we took on our way up to Tawang. Only this time we will stay at a unique and special place for the night instead of staying at the same homestay (if staying in Bomdila). By evening, we reach Bomdilla and stay in the monastery for the night, of course after exploring it.

Day 7 – Bomdila To Guwahati

Wake up early today to explore the monastery once again, this time while the monks are busy praying. After a hearty breakfast at the monastery, we start our return journey back to Guwahati which marks the end of this wonderful trip.
