Known to be the gateway to Tawang Valley, Sela Pass is one of the most-visited tourist attractions in Arunachal Pradesh. Lying at an altitude of 14000 feet above the sea level, this pass is counted amongst the high-altitude motorable passes, around the world. While driving on the pass, enjoy some most mesmerizing views of the snow-class Mountains. During the winter season, a sheet of white snow covers the pass. While driving towards Tawang, you come across Paradise Lake (or Sela Lake) that freezes in winters. Enjoy the captivating sight of gleaming sunrays, touching the white mountain tops.
Sela Pass connects Tawang Valley to the rest of the country. The pass is managed by Border Road Organization (BRO) and remains open all throughout the year. This region of eastern Himalayas is a revered one for the followers of Buddhism as the 101 lakes in and around Sela hold immense religious importance for the Buddhists.
