Nestled in the Himalayas in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, Tawang is called hidden paradise. It is still cut off from the rest of the world due to limited communication and climatic conditions. The people are humble, simple and devotional with very rich culture and heritage. There is scope for enriching the lives of the people in both modern education and traditional spiritual values.
