Sela Pass, Tawang


If there is heaven on earth, it is the Sela Mountain Pass, providing visitors heavenly bliss in abundance. In winter, the Sela range is lavishly dressed with white snow that gives visitors a magnificent sight to feed to their eyes. There is snow in this place most of the year and offers excellent and heavenly views all year round.

This part of the Eastern Himalayan range is pretty special for the Buddhists as it is believed that about 101 lakes exist in and around Sela Pass and each of these lakes has a huge religious significance for the Buddhist community. While Sela Pass does get heavy snow in winters, it is usually open throughout the year unless landslides or snow require the pass to be shut down temporarily.
