Arunachal Pradesh, a mysterious and relatively unexplored land of the Eastern Himalayas with the beautiful Gori Chen range and the 7000m+ Kangto Peak towering above the unending carpet of pine tree tops. A walk down memory lane: abandoned army bunkers that remind one of the Indo-Chinese war that played out in this Himalayan region decades ago. High altitude lakes hidden between snowy mountain slopes, as always, adding to the charm of the famous Tse La Pass. And for those who adore the colorful rhododendrons – the months of April and May provide colors galore of these blooming Himalayan natives. Towards the end of the trek, the Tawang River roars along, carving its way through thick forests – to sum up a hike that keeps surprising you with an its sights and sounds all along.
