1 Day Tour
0 Nights / 1 Day
Walk down Main Street in Bomdila and feel nostalgia well up in you like a spring. The timbered houses and pots beaming with flowers, the crisp breeze and cobalt sky are all reminiscent of distant places in the Alps. But instead you are here, in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas at the heart of the Buddhist region.
Located 15 kilometers from Rupa village in West Kameng District, the Sang-Ngag Choekar Dargyeling Monastery is built on a promontory which offers spectacular 270 degree views of the surrounding Eastern Himalayan valleys. More commonly known as Chilipam Gompa, the secluded sanctuary is adorned with some of the region's most magnificent Buddhist art.
08.30 AM: Meet our guide for briefing on the itinerary for the day.
09.00 AM: Take a scenic walk up to Rigzin Woeseling Monastery. This short trek lasts 40 minutes and requires some physical stamina. Take in stunning panoramic views of Bomdila town and the surrounding valleys on the way. Experience traditional Moo (fortune telling) and share tea with the revered resident monk, Sange Lama.
12.00 PM: Visit GRL Monastery and walk down to the covered market in Bomdila. Let aromas of yak's cheese and smoked morel mushrooms tickle your nose, and shop for colorful woven baskets, bags and traditional hand-loomed satchels.
14.00 PM: Sample a typical lunch of momo and thukpa.
14.30 PM: Drive to Sang-Ngag Choekar Dargyeling Monastery, more commonly known as Chilipam Gompa, located approx. 28 kilometers away in Rupa. Take your time to marvel at and photograph the stunning alpine scenery.

About the Guide
"I'm a woman entrepreneur from Austria and run a resort in Goa, India. I have rarely followed
the crowd, have always lived curiously and am unafraid to travel alone. But when the time came
for me to explore India, I wanted someone else to put together a fascinating itinerary and look
after the logistics for me so that I could totally let my hair down and have fun.
It was a huge stroke of good fortune that I found out about Sange Tsering - The Holiday Scout.
Highly knowledgeable about the natural, historical and cultural treasures of Northeast India,
well organized and committed to customer satisfaction in his approach, Sange is more than a
qualified travel guide.
Given his contagious enthusiasm for discovery, Sange encouraged me to try everything and what
started out as a tour quickly became a glorious pursuit of new life experiences which we found
and swallowed whole for eleven straight days! Northeast India is a truly mesmerizing region,
and I will surely return to travel with The Holiday Scout - the guide makes all the difference."
