the world's most spectacular roads

Sela Pass

Sela Pass, also known as Se La, is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.170m (13,700ft) above the sea level, located in Tawang District of Arunachal Pradesh state of India. It’s amongst the most frequented tourist destination in the whole of Arunachal Pradesh.

The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. It connects the Buddhist city of Tawang Town to Tezpur and Guwahati and is the main road connecting Tawang with the rest of India.
The climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. The ever-windy Sela Pass gets heavy snow in winters and is usually open throughout the year unless landslides or snow require the pass to be shut down temporarily. This place is snowed in most of the year and offers excellent and heavenly views all year round.  The air is thin, oxygen is less and one gets tired and starts panting very soon. Despite this the experience of just being there is exhilarating.
