This is the main pathway that connects Tawang with the other parts of India. Tourists while passing via this mountainpass have the heavenly feel, thanks to the unmatched beauty of the region. Sela pass remains covered under the thick sheet of snows for round the year. Sela pass in addition to being a natural sight, also has its association with a man, who has been serving as an inspiration to number of Indians and Indian Soldiers, till date. Who can forget the unmatched bravery of Rifleman Jaswant Singh Rawat, who faced the whole cohort of Chinese soldiers, all by himself and assisted by only a couple of girls named Sela and Nura. This one man Vs the whole contingent of Chinese army continued for a span of 72 hours at a stretch. A memorial called as “Jaswant garh” in his memory has been built between the Se la and Jang that houses all the belongings of this great son of soil, who dared to resist the advancing steps of enemies, all alone, aided with a couple of girls. He had been awarded Maha vir Chakra, after his death. His memorial has been serving more like a shrine and earns reverence from everyone, who passes this rout. Jaswant garh can be reached after covering up a distance of 21 Kms from Sela pass.
