ACCOMMODATIONS IN TAWANG


ACCOMMODATIONS IN TAWANG

Finding information about Tawang in any search engine as a tourist you will not have any problem. Even the sightseeing details and other details related to the place in getting are very simple. But hardly the hotels of any unconventional places like Tawang we get in detail. So I thought it necessary for me to educate my tourist guest to know about those hotels, so it can help them more to decide their stay according to the budget permits before visiting the place.

Tawang presents you the gift of nature displayed in every inch of the land and holds you tight with its unparalleled beauty. Surrounded by lakes with a height of 10000 feet above Mean Sea Level, Twang’s beauty will reach to your soul through your eyes. Tibet in the Northern side, Bhutan in the South West and Sella range of West Kameng to the Eastern direction has gifted the location of the land to mesmerize. Such splendid valleys, foggy rivers and astounding waterfalls in this attractive landscape will give you the eventual and ultimate experience.

While Tawang is munificent to tender you endless magnetisms, in short we sum up the top 10 places to visiting worth in your Tawang Tour which you should not to miss on your tour.

1.      SELA PASS
2.      TAWANG MONASTERY
3.      TAKTSANG GOMPA
4.      GORICHEN PEAK
5.      SHONGA-TSER LAKE
6.      NURANANG WATERFALLS
7.      PANKANG TENG TSO LAKE
8.      BUMLA PASS

In order to reach Tawang either you have to come Guwahati or Tezpur which is the Getaway to Tawang. It is mandatory to have a night stay in Bhalukpong and / or Bomdila or Dirang because of the distance of more than 500 kms. Though there are many options of stay in Tawang but looking the present tourist inflow in this area, still the choices are limited during the peak season time. I will suggest only 24 hotels in Tawang where you and your family can stay according to the pocket allows.
If any travel agents are saying that any hotel in Tawang is a 3 Star or 4 Star hotels then this is a wrong saying. Not a single hotel will meet the criteria of a 3 Star hotel as per FHRAI or HAI. In order to correctly define the category we must use the word “equivalent”.

As per my classification we can divide the hotels in 3 categories i.e. Deluxe, Standard and Budget.

DELUXE HOTELS OF TAWANG:

Basically there are 5 Hotels / Resorts which can be said as a Deluxe property in Tawang.
ZAX STAR: This is one of the best properties in the location. There are total 18 rooms of 4 different categories. Rooms are well maintained and service of the hotel is good. The only unavoidable issue which the guest must understand that during load shedding generator cannot be operated all time. In Tawang there is electricity problem. So you cannot expect the generator can be able to replace the service all the time. But since the weather throughout the year is so pleasant that hardly Air-Conditions or Fans are required. Both vegetarian and non vegetarian food is available in the hotel.

GAYKI KHANG ZHANG: I will rate this hotel as the second best property in the town. The location of the hotel is fantastic and breathtaking. Rooms are also good and staffs are very friendly. But the management must educate the staff to give prompt service to the guest always. There are total 26 rooms in the hotel with different categories. Room heater is available at no extra cost provided if electricity is available. Both vegetarian and non vegetarian food is available in the hotel.

HOTEL MON PARADISE: Just a newly opened hotel and surely considered as a Deluxe hotel of Tawang. Total 18 numbers of rooms with all basic amenities. Location wise also the hotel is placed in a good area in the main market with scenic view from the window of the room. One can blindly take a bet in this hotel during Tawang stay.

HOTEL UGYENLING: This property is most probably managed by Nature Beyond. Though it shows in Google and other search engine as a budget hotel but I will definitely rate this hotel in a Deluxe Category. The location of the hotel is unquestionable very good, rooms are spacious, neat & clean and the hotel staffs are very friendly. There are 17 rooms of different category in the hotel and you will get both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food in the hotel restaurant.

DOLMA COTTAGES: This resort is from Dolma Group of Hotels. Though trip to Aruanchal cannot be themed as Honeymoon but if a honeymooner visiting Tawang then Dolma Cottages is a good choice. There are 6 separate cottages in about 1.5 acre of land. All the basic amenities are available in the Resort.

STANDARD HOTELS OF TAWANG:

If you are looking for a budget hotel with the members of your family in the tour then my recommended standard hotels of Tawang is the minimum quality of stay below which it is advised not to go with your family. I will give you the names of the hotels below with number of rooms available. In all the hotels you will get vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, hot water and separate bathroom.

1.      DOLMA KHANGSAR GUEST HOUSE: I am not sure but approximately there are 18 rooms in the hotel.
2.      INN TAWANG: Total numbers of rooms are 11 and it’s a good standard hotel to stay.
3.      TAWANG REGENCY: Total numbers of rooms is 14 and a standard hotel.
4.      HOTEL TAWANG VIEW: Total numbers of rooms are 18 with different category.
5.      MONYUL LODGE: It can be considered a boutique hotel with 8 rooms and a fine standard hotel.
6.      HOTEL PUNGTENG HOUSE: 21 rooms’ standard hotel with basic amenities.

BUDGET HOTELS OF TAWANG:

If you are travelling with friends (male) or you are a backpacker and your budget is very restricted then the below given hotels can be considered as a budget properties in Tawang.

1.      HOTEL DOLMA CHHINKAR
3.      HOTEL MOUNT VIEW
4.      HOTEL TASHI GA- TSEL
5.      HOTEL NEFA
6.      HOTEL MON KYEMOJONG
7.      DAWA HOTEL
8.      HOTEL WHITE HOUSE
9.      HOTEL SAMURAI
10.  HOTEL DUNG PHOO
11.  HOTEL HAPPY VALLEY
13.  MOUNTAIN VIEW TAWANG

DRAGON RESTUARANT: In Tawang this is one of the best restaurants in Old Market Tawang where you can get local cuisine, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. The cost of the food is high as well as after your order you have to wait for a while in order to get hot and delicious food.

Last but not the least, as a travel expert and consultant I would like to advice all the hoteliers of Tawang to introduce at least one bottle of complimentary water during check in to all the guests. The area lacks the hospitality of giving a glass of water to the guests who come from a long journey of more than 6-7 hours. Better they must introduce welcome drink at no extra cost. This will give a very good impression to the guests.
