Felt top of the world..

After reaching at Sella Pass, We just forgot the tiring day long road journey. The views from the top was awesome, but it was very chilling cold.

Visited the place in Dec. 2016. Sela lake that had just started to freeze made a beautiful entry to Tawang.

If traveling to Tawang , you pass through this beautiful LA , so just stop a while and enjoy the icy winds and the beautiful sights , a BSF canteen on one side of the pass and two beautiful, mostly frozen lakes , makes one wonder at the miracles of nature

Sela pass is on the route to tawang. In January it was completely covered with snow. We had to put chain on our cars from this point as it was impossible to friction otherwise. Hault here at least for few minutes. The chilly cold weather snow everywhere clear blue sky...it's just mesmerizing.

Sela Pass is at an altitude of 13700 feet and is the second highest motor-able pass. The road leading to Sela was misty and hardly had any visibility but just like magic, the car took a turn and there we are at Sela Pass;everything clear as if the mist was on a separate planet all together and we felt like...

I had been here in 7 Jan 2017, The lake was completely frozen & last 3 days of snowfall had made the roads very slippery for vehicles to move. Chain is essential.
