All About It

Located 444 Km from Guwahati, Tawang, the land of Monpas, and beautiful mountains, is both historically and naturally endowed. The name ‘Tawang’ means: ‘Ta’- Horse and ‘Wang’- Green pastures. It is situated in the state of Arunachal Pradesh at an altitude of 3,048 meters above sea level. The Tawang valley road trip and backpacking tour is one of the most adventurous trips you can go on. This bike expedition is the ultimate adventure for all those seeking the thrill of raw roads. The journey from Guwahati to Tawang is full of surprises and attractions. Riding on the mountains and passing by the majestic spectacles will leave you exalted.

Tawang is a treat for nature enthusiasts, photography lovers, and adventurers, making it one of the most sought-after destinations in the Northeast. Ancient monasteries, waterfalls, lakes, and rugged landscapes are only a few of the things that you will be seeing. Since the routes are raw and rugged, it is very famous in India as well as for bikers from around the world. You will ride over the highway, mountains, off-road, and rocks to get to Tawang, the blessed valley of the North East. It takes a certain level of zeal to go biking through the “Land of dawn-lit mountains”.

We start our 7 nights, 8 days bike expedition to Tawang from Guwahati. Guwahati, the capital of Assam, with rich and diverse flora and fauna, is known as 'the city of Eastern Light’. It stands on the southern banks of the mighty river Brahmaputra and is a gateway to the entire northeastern states.  Dirang, a serene village in Arunachal Pradesh, lies in the West Kameng district on the banks of the Jia Bharali River. While in Dirang, you can take a walk through the peaceful village and take in the beautiful and calm environment.  The PTSO Lake, or Sangestar Tso, is a lake located on the way from Tawang to Bumla pass. This lake has one of the highest altitudes in India and the world at a height of 15,200fts. It remains frozen in winters and becomes a haven for migratory birds during summers.  The Bum La Pass is located about 37 km away from Tawang, at the Indo-China border 16,500 ft above sea level. The roads are mostly covered with snow. The road to Bum La is also a historical route; here in Bum La Pass one of the fiercest battles took place in the 1962 Sino-Indian War.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?

This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited

They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!

Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.

Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
