We did not stay for long at Tawang and headed back after two days. The journey on the way back was uneventful. We retraced the same path via Sela pass, Dirang and Bomdila. We had thoughts of staying at the beautiful town of Dirang for the night, but the hotels there were all booked. So we moved further and halted for the night at Tenga village. The only reason we chose the place was that it was familiar to us, as it was the gateway to Eaglenest and we knew a few people there.
We started easy next morning towards Assam. The road from Tenga to Bhalukpong is very pretty and goes through some thick undisturbed evergreen forest. We continued down the Bomdila – Tezpur highway in Assam to Haathi gate, where we were planning to stay for the night in an angling camp bordering Nameri National Park. It was late in the afternoon when we reached there. We checked in at the angling camp and spent rest of the evening walking around the place.
