The Kall of Kameng

From luxuriant forests to alpine pastures and snow crowned peaks, this is a journey rooted in belief, a voyage in the footsteps of legions of scholars, religious men, traders and explorers. This is the path to Lhasa, trodden for hundreds of years by the faithful. It is also one of the great trade routes into Tibet attracting explorers and merchants alike.

Constructed in the period 1643-47, the Tawang monastery is the spiritual fountainhead of Gelugpa Buddhism in the region, a beacon for the intensely devout Monpa and Sherdukpen people. Located on the spur of a hill, 10,000 feet above sea level, it commands the Tawang Chu valley. Established by Mera Lama, a renounced Buddhist monk, at the command d of the Fifth Dalai Lama, it is one the largest in the Himalayan region, accommodating in residence five hundred lamas.

The sixth Dalia Lama, Tsangyang Gyastso (1683-1706) was born in the Tawang region. In 1689, the young Dalai Lama, accompanied by a retinue of the faithful, set out from Tawang to Lhasa, via Bum La. Two and a half centuries later, in March 1959, the present Dalai Lama did the same route in reverse, fleeing across eh Himalayas to seek sanctuary. The present Dalai Lama was received at Bum La, and escorted to Tawang, where he stayed a few days, before going on the Bomdi La, where he spent a few months.

Bomdi La,Se La, Jaswant Garh, Tawang, Namka Chu, Bum La – the site of some of the fiercest battles of 1962, where ill equipped soldiers of the Indian Army fought bravely. The route covers many of these places, dotted with memorial to the fallen soldiers.
