All-weather communication will soon be possible thanks to the Sela Pass tunnel. According to news reports, the Line of Actual Control (LAC) near Tawang near the China border will be accessible to the Indian Army along this road in all weather circumstances. The Border Roads Organization in Arunachal Pradesh is making every effort to build this route at a height of 13,000 feet.

By July 2023, if all goes as planned, the tunnel should be finished. People and Indian Army soldiers currently go to Tawang via the Balipara-Chariduar Road because the Sela Pass route's connection is currently impeded by winter snowfall, which is the primary cause of vehicle movement restrictions.

According to sources, the Sela Pass tunnel will connect Baisakhi and Nuranang by avoiding the current road. A few kilometres to the west of the Sela Pass, in the West Kameng district, the Tawang district is divided from it by the Sela-Charbela mountain, which is traversed by the Sela tunnel.

When the tunnel is finished, it will permit efficient vehicle traffic for the advantage of both travellers and Army personnel. Additionally, according to rumours, the journey will be shortened by around 8 to 9 miles after the tunnel is finished.
