I believe these guys operate them (or are one of the main operators anyway), Pawan Hans, you could try and contact them: http://164.100.52.5/.

Seems to be a hit-and-miss affair yes, and I've heard helicopter flying in India doesn't exactly have a good safety record, in terms of accidents that occur.

See this very informative thread:

The price in April 2009 was about 50 US $ for a one-way flight which last 55 minutes and saves you a two-day sumo journey.

Contradicting my earlier post above in this thread, just today I was able to glean this information about the helicopter booking service for Tawang (since a friend of mine in Kolkata had asked me to find out about it):

For the helicopter booking to Tawang, please contact Mr. J.C.Sarkar, 09435390250, S.B.Deb 09954712604, M.M.Deka 09435114076. They are all based in Guwahati Airport and work for the Helicopter service for the Arunachal sector.

I have received this information today itself from a reliable source who deals with Arunachal Pradesh.

Please let us know if it works, as I would be interested for my own records and future use, as I am quite sure lots of people on this forum would be also.

My own personal feeling is that it is extremely difficult to know in advance about the helicopter since the seats tend to be taken by VIPs. Good luck.

Maybe it was not a very good idea to post in this thread. There is currently NO helicopter service between Tawang and Guwahati.

Please go through some of the other threads in the Arunachal Pradesh forum. If you opt to travel by shared sumo you can certainly keep to a lower budget.
