We traveled to Tawang crossing Sela (pass). As we stayed at couple of places over night, before passing through this place, we could save ourselves from high altitude sickness. This pass is at elevation of 13700 feet, generally cold and chill weather. There is a sacred idol of Lord Buddha at hillock near the gate. There is army canteen serving hot tea and coffee for all travelers. The lake nearby is most enchanting sight not to be missed. Deep valleys around and snow clad peaks provide a panoramic view of majestic Himalayas. Keep Inner Line Permit ready for verification by army personnel. There is a war memorial dedicated to a great martyr Jaswant Singh, his brave and courageous act to defend our motherland during 1962 war are captured truthfully as a source of inspiration to all Indians. Please don't stay at the Sela otherwise, there is a likelihood of altitude sickness. Keep a medical kit to face any medical emergency.

A must visit place at 13700 feet
Sep 2021 • Friends
I visited this place with friends. We reached there at around 2 PM. This is a beutiful place with full of fog. Temperature was around 12 degrees. Place has a few shops and army canteen and a serene and beautiful lake in 200 meters. You can get maggie , tea and dry sacks like chocolate and biscuits here. The army people are really friendly and they make yummy maggie tea. Don't expect any other option for food if you are going there in lunch time. Many of our phone network was also working fine. We did a mistake of missing out on Lake and later when we returned to this place it was raining so couldn't enjoy the lake.
The route to this pass is little tough but local drivers were experienced to cross this. You will see many army vehicles ans our army people either in drill or training.

THE SE LA PASS - 13,700 ft
Dec 2020
Tawang district is home to nearly 101 pristine lakes of which 3 lakes can be found in Sela Pass. Sela Pass is a mountain pass which you will need to cross before reaching Tawang. This place remains mostly covered in snow and is usually too much windy. So its highly recommended to wear good layers of clothing and to travel to this region with proper guidance.

Beautiful high altitude pass which is the entrance to Tawang. It snowed the night before and the pass was covered in snow when we crossed it. The Sela lake was almost frozen.

Picture Perfect Place at 13700 Ft
Mar 2020
Sela Pass is a beautiful place, with an elevation of 13700 ft. on the way to Tawang. Probably coldest place on the way till you reach Tawang / Bumla. Road condition is reasonably good ...

We visited it in the third week of Mar-20. Temperature was near to Zero, we were lucky to witness snow fall at Sela Pass as well...

You can see Frozen Sela Lake and Army run Canteen.... Worth visiting, go with winter cloths...

Sela Pass is one of the many examples of this Grace bestowed, where words fall short of any explanation, thus I thought it best to put photographic expressions of how the lake changes its colours with the movement of the Sun.
