Mayudia Pass

The road to the summit, also known as Mayuda Pass and Mayodiya Pass is mostly unpaved. It’s called NH-313. Most of the time, the pass may be traversed by passenger vehicles. Mayodia is a Deori-Chutia word: "Mayo" means "mother goddess", "Di" means "water" and "Ya" means "land".

Located within the Dibang Valley, the pass is 176km long running south-north from Roing to Etalin, a small village. The drive crosses wild nature, countless bridges, and bends over bends. Heavy snowfalls can happen any time.
