Tenga Valley–Tucked amidst the Eastern Himalayas

Tenga valley is a small town situated in a valley of the Eastern Himalayas in Arunachal Pradesh. It is an important landmark for those travelling to Tawang in the Western end of Arunachal Pradesh. This small town, which also doubles up as an important army check post is blessed with some splendid Himalayan vistas.

Tenga valley is situated at an altitude of 6,500 feet above MSL and is covered in thick green vegetation. It snows here only for a couple of days in the peak winter season. But, if one were to climb towards Eaglenest Wildlife Sanctuary, situated about 22 kilometres away, then the entire snow capped Himalayan vista comes into view.

I took this picture when I was making the climb from Tenga to Eaglenest.  Tenga town looked like a speck to me. May be, my vision was intimidated by the mighty wavy peaks of the Eastern Himalayas that totally surrounds this puny town.
