Manda La top is a series of 108 buddhist stupa that have been built in a circle, on the top of mountain in Arunachal Pradesh.
It is one of the kind place where Om Mani Padme Hum is inscribed on 108 stupas. Buddhist stupa is a religious monument, which is built for a loved one or to keep religious books and do prayer.
So here is a complete guide to 108 Mandal Top/Mane in Arunachal Pradesh
Where is Manda la top and How to reach
Manda la Top is perched at an altitude of 10,000 ft and so you will quickyl feel the altitude once you reach. It is approx 30 km from main city but the entire route is serpentine and Bumpy road. It should take not more than an hour to reach.
There are no buses that could take you to the top, it is better to hire a local taxi. The entire route is windy , beautiful and bumpy at the same time.
Entry timing and Fee
Mandala Top is open 24 hrs but its better to visit in daytime before sunet. Due to the high altitude, its always windy and cold and by the evening, entire place is covered with clouds. We reached at top around 11 AM and by 2 PM it started getting cloudy and windy.
