The surrounding Tawang Chhu Valley in the Twang district is a virtual Shangri-La, of lush forests, smiling vales, gurgling streams, picture post card villages and a lovely, smiling people, surrounded by high mountain barriers above 4000 meters. This is a rare opportunity to explore the Buddhist lifestyles of the unique and remote Himalayan tribal culture of the Monpas. You get to see the various monasteries, Monpa villages and the breathtaking vistas of Himalayan uplands. We also visit two national parks; The Kaziranga and Nameri, and visit Bomdila, with its set on monasteries, Sherdukpen and Bugin tribes of the Twang Arunachal Pradesh.
Attractions of Ta Wang Monastery
The most imposing part of the Ta Wang monastery is the Dukung, or the assembly hall - a three-storied building housing the temple and the 8.3-m high Golden Buddha. The building also has a library, a treasure trove of valuable sculptures, old books and manuscripts, both handwritten and printed. Also housed here is the establishment of the Rimpoche, or lama incarnate. And before you set to leave from there do not forget to click lots of Twang photos to take back the sweet and memorable memories of your Twang tour.
