Let’s take you on a riveting journey that helps you explore the history and helps you understand why you have heard about his places everywhere. So without further ado, let’s dive into it, and if you have some other ideas, feel free to chime in.
We can’t start this article without mentioning Tawang that is the cleanest district in the region. The hygiene at the place is top-notch, and you will find people following all the necessary rules to keep themselves safe amid the rising global crisis.
The place is known as the cleanest district in North East India. Other places have followed the path and are on the way to become an example for others to follow. A refreshing meal like Pehak will make you feel better. You can always try some other food because the place has foods that make you fall in love with spices.
The pass has both religious and tourist attractions attached to it. It is considered sacred by Buddhists as they believe that there are 101 lakes around it. Snow covers this pass through the year, but it only adds to the elegance of the pass. Sela lake is also a part of this pass, and it freezes during winter, which makes the view mesmerizing.
Tawang was at ten thousand feet, and this is at thirteen thousand seven hundred feet, so it’s a given that the stomach would be screaming ‘Hungry.’ Treat your taste buds to Apong, which is rice beer. If you want to enjoy something lite that keeps you energized but doesn’t overburden your stomach, then you can go for Chura Sabji. Made from fermented cheese of Yak or Cow’s Milk, the taste makes you want to have more. You can always add bhut jolokia or raja mircha to make it spicy.
Now, let’s shift bases from Tawang and Sela pass to a place that offers you a wildlife sanctuary, museum, botanical garden and quaint villages. The Glow Lake in the Lohit District area beside the mountains fills you with various feelings all at once. Amusement, Excitement, Enthusiasm, Disbelief and Happiness all come and go at once in your mind. We suggest you spend some time in the lap of nature and hear the natural sounds around you.
After that breathtaking experience, let’s gather for something to feed the appetite. Marua will be the right choice, and unlike Apong, Millet forms this drink. If you are hungry and want to try something vegetarian, then Dung Po will be a perfect choice. Made from rice and on two brass utensils, the rice comes to you wrapped in leaves. The aroma of the food grows multifold, as does your willingness to grab it and enjoy it.
The place is perfect for history buffs, trekking and adventure lovers. Located on the banks of the Dibang River, it exudes peace and serenity. If you are on a trip to have some ‘Me’ time, then Arunachal Pradesh is the place to be. Nothing matches the natural beauty, calmness and serenity.
After the serene experience, if you want to shoot for something delicious, try the Bamboo Shoot dish. Drool into the taste of the bamboo and baking soda, which has additional spices in it to appease your taste buds. The cooking on low fire adds to the finesse of the dish, as you start repeating ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop’ in your mind.
The beauty of this place takes you in as you witness lush greenery, hills, and orange orchards. Every location has some local history, and if you like to take a trip into the location’s historical importance, you can connect with the tribals. This experience will help you learn about the rituals as well as traditions.
You must visit Mechuka Valley, Ramakrishna Ashram, Donyi Polo Temple, Patum Bridge, Kaying Villages, Jirdin and Hanging Bridge during your visit to Along. Let’s end this trip with a dish that you would have heard of worldwide, Momos. When you eat it here, you would quickly understand whether you have been served or swerved with momos all this while before this experience.
