Brief Itinerary

Detailed Itinerary

Our journey to heaven will begin when we arrive at Guwahati Railway Station and leave for our today’s destination - Tezpur. We leave the city’s muddle and drive through the beautiful picturesque roads leading us to Tezpur. After we reach Tezpur, we lay our luggage in our guest house and after enough rest, we visit the beautiful town of Tezpur. We will have the majority of the day in our hands to explore this town. We will walk through the various markets of this town. We will explore many small lanes that will always lead us to something we haven’t explored before. We will try the local dishes of this town to embrace their culture and converse with many locals who will sing us the tales of this amazing town. In case one could not get the ILP permit in Guwahati, one can get it here as well. We shall rest before our next exciting day begins, our guest house.

Meals : Dinner only
Accommodation : Hotel/Homestay
Time Taken : 6 hours
Distance : 182 km

Since the lanes are on a high elevation and on such heights, the climate can turn bad, thus, we will leave promptly in the first part of the day to keep away from any such obstructions which may upset our trek. In any case, the adventurers have nothing to stress. The silver lining is the thick greenery on the two sides of the solitary lanes. We will come across many army camps and posts. A held timberland zone, huge open fields with a winding stream wandering out there, our today’s drive is very lively and picturesque. Our first stop is a small town at Arunachal Pradesh and Assam border called Bhalukpong. The road ascends upwards after this point. We will watch a lot of armed force camps as we clear our path through the foggy wildernesses towards Dirang. On our approach to Dirang, we go over a lovely town of Bomdila, an attractive slope town on mountain inclines. This present town's magnificence is included by the little streams, the excellent engineering of the homes in this town alongside the quiet climate. After we take a reroute at Munna Camp from Dirang, we leave for our definitive goal, Lagaam by late in the early afternoon. The way to Lagaam is unpaved and it will appear to be a ride for the voyagers. The town of Lagaam is arranged among thick woodlands. Lagaam accommodates a shocking outdoors located under the delightfully lit sky before beginning our trek into the Eastern Himalayas.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Homestay
Time Taken : 10 hours
Altitude : 8,858 ft

We climb through the thickly green timberland trail of this district, pushing forward for the following couple of hours. The setting of the surroundings is so quiet and lovely, the fervor stays steady amid this trek. Following a couple of long periods of trekking higher height, our trail at that point runs over another lovely spot, Chander. This area is a discretionary beginning stage for this trek since it has an engine capable way. This way is utilized generally by the military vehicles however it is utilized by periodic trekkers frequently and local people track through this course as well. The tendency backs out a little starting here. Our present goal is just an hour from this point. While on this trail, we can even now have Lagaam, Pangma and Thembang in our vision as we move more distant while our way loses its thinness and expands and is beautified by the in all respects unattractive Tibetan supplication banners. These banners speak to harmony, empathy, insight, and quality. Seeing these banners while trekking along this way prompts energy. Thungri is a spot that serves two intentions: as a trek's first campground and as a spot to keep domesticated animals for local people in summer. Since this is a piece of the incomparable Himalayas, cold and wonderful grand excellence is self-evident. After our supper, we should remain inside the tents and get some rest for our following day's trek to Chang La.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 6 hours
Altitude : 10,500 ft.

The view from Thungri promptly in the first part of the day when the sun is simply rising, the sky is saffron, before long swinging to blue, the slopes are secured with mists and there is a moderate yet chilling breeze spouting in our face, it is stunning. This view is something you always needed. It is upon the climate on the off chance that it will give us a chance to see the awesome Gorichen run, the sight is stunning! We trek through a dense rhododendron forest for about 2 to 3 hours on a manageable incline. But after we reach Kadambara, the trail inclines steeply for almost an hour till we reach the altitude of 3,760m on Chang La. Chang La is a comely, enormous campsite, elevated above its lush forests, giving us the perfect location to have a clear and perfect view of the landscape of peaks. Although, as we walk towards the campsite, we can spot a number of disguised army bunkers that served in the war.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 6 hours
Altitude : 12,335 ft.

We leave Chang La and trek further to cross two passes today. This trek will only be steep for some time, but it will be worth it for the adventurers. As we cross the forest of Chang La, we reach Poshing La after which we go to Pangi La. Our path is painted by rhododendrons as we ascend towards Nyang and then to Potok where we will set our tents and spent the night over here.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 8 hours
Altitude : 15,332 ft.

From Nyang, it takes almost an hour’s trek to reach Potok and from Potok, Tse La is another trek of an hour. Even though the dense forests whose trees reach the sky and chilling breeze and the mist gushing in our face reminds of how high we are, but the slope and our path is not adverse. This slow trek of two hours is necessary to complete before we reach a small sublime lake before the pass, and after the pass we can sight a larger lake, which is even more serene and it provides a sense of achievement and victory because of Tibetan prayer flags which are decorated around here, which solely represent wisdom, peace, and compassion, marking this point as the highest altitude of the Bailey Trail trek. The landscapes are recast as we descend to the valley floor. From there we take a wooden bridge to cross the stream and we trek alongside the stream. The sound of stream water flowing through the path and the sound of water slamming over the rocks and pebbles continues to ring our ears as we trek along the stream till we reach Luthrim. We camp alongside the stream for the night.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Altitude : 14,300 ft.

We trek alongside the river towards our destination, Mago. And as we descend towards Tawang river the path is, once again, colored by rhododendrons. We finally reach Mago after half an hour trek. Mago is quite a large village and it is situated on the Indo-Tibet border, thus, we can see army camps everywhere.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 6 hours
Altitude : 11,800 ft.

The challenges involved in today’s trek will always keep you active and energetic for the adventures to come. We trek for almost 5 to 6 hours after which Tidy and legitimate, tinned, armed force cottages report the Thimbu Hydel territory. After we reach Thimbu Hydel, we drive back to Tawang for two hours.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Hotel
Time Taken : 8 hours
Altitude : 10,900 ft.

We spend this day relaxing and enjoying our time in the city. We will visit the Tawang - the largest in India and the second largest in Asia. We will visit the orchid gardens and many more stupas. We spend the night at our hotel in Tawang.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Hotel
Altitude : 10,900 ft.

We drive to Bomdila which will take around 5 to 6 hours. We had seen a gist of this beautiful while trekking uphill and now we will visit this beautiful place. We will experience the predominant culture of this place - Buddhism and also explore this city’s depth.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Hotel/ Homestay
Time Taken : 5 hours

The last day in this beautiful piece of Earth, as we drive towards Guwahati, via Tezpur reliving all the memories we made in the last week and relishing the moments with our fellow adventurers on this 10 to 12 hours ride. We bid farewells to our friends and fellow adventurers and finally go back home.

Meals : Breakfast Only
