    The highest pass on the way to Tawang from Dirang, the Sela Pass, acts as natural border between the West Kameng and Tawang districts of Arunachal Pradesh.

    Undoubtedly, the most important place (and equally gorgeous) place to visit in Tawang is the Gaden Namgyal Lhatse or the Tawang Monastery. Housing 65 residential quarters for students, Lamas and monks, this monastery, which is also the world's largest Buddhist monastery now, is a small town in itself, with its own school, water-supply system and hospital.

    Buddhist prayers, dances and many religious are regularly performed here and it is quite an experience them in person.
