Travel to Tawang

Tawang is a town in the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh, situated at an elevation of approximately 8,757 feet above the sea level.

A visit to Tawang requires an inner line permit for the Indian nationals and a protected area permit for the foreign tourists. These permits can be well arranged from the office of the Deputy Resident Commissioner of Arunachal Pradesh.

The town’s overwhelming scenic beauty peppered with snow-crowned Himalayan peaks, entrancing alpine lakes and captivating waterfalls, truly make it an idyllic hideout for those passionate nature lovers and adventure seekers who are always in lookout for destinations less explored and roads less travelled.

When is the best time to visit Tawang:

Summers (April to June) - 5°C - 21°C

If you are a summer loving traveller and prefer to carry less clothes, then summer is the perfect time to visit Tawang. With temperature ranging from 5°c - 21°c, it makes an ideal summer vacation for family, honeymooners and even for solo travellers.

Monsoons (July to September) - 18°C - 29°C

Monsoon has a cooling weather and a perfect season to cuddle up and gaze at the beautiful wonders outside. After a hot summer season, it is a must to cool down, that’s when monsoon plays its part. Sometimes this season experiences sudden change in the weather and it is constant, you may see dark clouds in one moment and sunny sky soon after.

Winters (Oct to March) - minus 11°C - 12°C

Certainly not an ideal time as the weather is uncomfortable and it is way too cold. The minimum temperature fluctuates between minus 11°C to 12°c and it remains quite chilly, though refreshing.
