Tawang Trekking Tour Packages

Tawang is one of the most highly sensitive areas in India and is always being closely watched by the Indian Army. It is located in the North Eastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh and borders Tibet to the North, Bhutan to the West, and the Sela Range to the East. The town, which is torn between political and national lines, has an intriguing history. It was previously a part of Tibet province in China and was taken by the British Army during their colonial reign in India in order to gain control of the North East area. Tawang became part of Indian Territory when the British withdrew in 1947, but the Chinese had their eyes on it the entire time. Chinese forces attempted to retake the area in 1962 but were defeated by gallant Indian soldiers. The region is still up for debate, with China maintaining its claim to it as its own. Without being specific, visiting Tawang necessitates obtaining inner line permission for Indian citizens and a protected area permit for international visitors. From the office of the Deputy Resident Commissioner of Arunachal Pradesh, these permissions may be efficiently arranged.
