Sela pass is a high altitude mountain pass that connects the Buddhist city of Tawang with the rest of the country.
This pass is situated at 13,700 feet above MSL and is located between the towns of Bomdila and Jung in Western Arunachal Pradesh.
The only way one can reach Tawang by road is through the Sela pass. If this road gets blocked for whatever reason…enemy trouble, bad weather, heavy snowfall, etc, then commute to the district of Tawang struggles.
And that is precisely the reason why the Indian army has stationed a huge battalion there to thwart off any enemy advances from this point.
This place is snowed in most of the year and offers excellent and heavenly views all year round. This part of the Eastern Himalayan range is pretty special for the Buddhists as it is believed that about 101 lakes exist in and around Sela pass and each of these lakes has a huge religious significance for the Buddhist community.
Overall, the Sela pass is one magnificent place to visit. Its Himalayan views are un-paralleled.
