|Tawang: A tourism hotspot|
It’s feared that tourists of this winter season are avoiding visit to places like Bomdila, Dirang and Tawang because of the poor condition of the road. Tawang, located at the soaring height of about 10,000 feet above sea level, is known for its mystic beauty. Every year, thousands of tourists visit this enchanting location bordering Tibet in north and Bhutan in the south west. Tawang is the home of Monpa tribe of the state.
