On the way to Sangetsar lake, 42kms from Tawang town. A Permission from Army has to be taken to visit this place. When asked for permission we were told 2wd cars have difficulty reaching this place, we wanted to try.

The Drive to Sangester lake, this lake emerged after the Earthquake of 1950(According to district website), but the board at the lake says 1971 earthquake.

We reached the Lake without much difficulty, only at some sections with steep incline we experienced some wheelspin.

Last Batch of Photos.

On the way back we stayed at the Army camp in Tenga. We were alloted VVIP cottages just next to the river, a nice place to relax.

The next day afternoon we drove to Guwahati to catch a flight to Delhi.

Special Thanks to our driver, Ali. He sat quietly all the time and let us drive all the way.

We found the climate and Vegetation very different from what we have here in North. I had never seen so much rain before this.

Any more pointers on what all can be seen there?
I don't know much about Meghalaya, we spent one day and two night here, we visited Shillong town and Cherapunji.

Thanks, North East is very beautiful and different. The Only concern is security in some states.

Thank you, We covered around 3000kms in 10 days. The Army guys said it was poisonous.

Man awesome pictures. The monastery especially. I feel that in all these areas when one does meditate (here religion does not matter just that you want to be quiet and try to communicate with the one that created all this) it must be a magical experience. It must be all mysterious too with all those mist covered mountains , cold air. Truly amazing and away from the hustle-bustle of the city.

Thank you, Even i find visiting Monasteries a magical experience unlike any other place. The Tawang Monastery is the biggest Monastery in India and second largest in the world after Lhasa Monastery.

Good to see another travelogue on Arunachal. This one being summer and I think the earlier one by adc was during the peak winter

I love those quaint little towns in Megalaya. Looks lovely in overcast weather - seems like time has forgotten this place

Cool

Hey Anshuman, nice pics and narration man. This thread has inspired me even more to visit the charming NE.

A quick question, what (if there were) were the problem you encountered doing the trip using a car with low GC?

Awesome travelogue though a short one.
The long exposure shot of the river has come out really good!

I want to go to Tawang again!

Thank you, Cars with average GC can manage with careful driving, even with 4 people onboard we never felt the need for additional GC.

Thanks Pulsar56, The long exposure shot is a try without tripod using a Prosumer camera by a beginner.
