The remote Tawang Valley in Arunachal Pradesh is famous as the site of India’s largest Buddhist monastery, home to more than 500 red-robed monks and novices. Bordered by Tibet and Bhutan, the whole area feels more Tibetan than Indian, with prayer flags fluttering from the rooftops and snow peaks forming an awesome backdrop to its lush valleys and pine forests. The predominant ethnic group here are the Monpas, whose men folk wear a peculiar kind of hat resembling strands of matted black dreadlocks.
