India | Arunachal Pradesh


Zemithang is a Monpa settlement in Tawang District and lies near the Indo Tibet border. It is located at the head of a picturesque vale, created by the river Namjang Chu flowing in from Tibet. Zemithang lies in the remote and some times isolated north-western most corner of the district, sandwiched between Bhutan and China. Tawang - the district headquarters is 93 km south-east.

Gorsam Chorten, a 100 ft high stupa that soars over the narrow river like a behemoth, is a stunning sight and hence a tourist hotspot near Zemithang. B T K Waterfalls is a nature's splendor situated nearby. Many more waterfalls can be witnessed on the way from Tawang to Zemithang.

Zemithang has a government rest house which should be booked in advance from Tawang. A few buses operate between Tawang and Zemithang; but hiring a private vehicle would be a better option.
