Memorable spiritual experience. Getting here again after 2 decades was something. The paths are well maintained and was relieved to see the railings before reaching taktshang. I remember having to crawl and move like spiders those days!

Would be good to plan very early in the morning to avoid the scorching sun. Although most of the way is under shade some are not. Take plenty of sunscreen and snacks.

We went on a Monday hence there were hardly anyone. Good to avoid the crowd as the main temples are quite small.

You can consider a hot stone bath or a massage in one of the hotels near the base after climbing back.

Must visit place.
The trek is very good and you will see a breathtaking view of the monastery. On the way there will be waterfalls and different birds.
Please get yourself checked first if you have breathing problems because oxygen concentration will decrease which may cause problem to some people.

Pathways and areas are clean, it better early to travel than later. Sun hit directly might give u sunburn while traveling and it took 1.5-2hr to reach the monastery. It is worth traveling so enjoy

One of the most visited place in the country. And completely worth the whole day of hiking.

Everyone already know the story behind the name of this monastery being Tiger's Nest. The journey takes about 2.30-3 hours one way on foot. Though horses are available for the ride, but its upto about halfway, rest is to be done on foot due to the incline u0026 steps.
The trail is very scenic u0026 moving along greeneries.

The monastery at the top is an amazing feat of marvel, considering the location u0026 hardwork required for the infrastructure. The monks are really very nice u0026 friendly. They offered us war butter tea to relieve our tiredness.

Located in the cliffside of the upper valley in Bhutan, Paro Taktsang is an eminent Buddhist sacred site and is also known as Tiger’s Nest or Taktsang Palphug Monastery. This temple has become the folk icon of Bhutan which Hangs at an uncertain cliff at 10240 feet above the Paro valley, reaching the temple is only possible through a mountainous route. The remote location makes it difficult to reach but also makes it beautiful, unique and an unforgettable destination at the same time and it is one of the best places to visit in Paro.

At the entrance you need to pay 100 INR and collect some sticks for upward journey . We also did so . There are samll market selling various local commodities which you can purchase for suvenior , cost is quite high. Saw some traveller coming down some are moving up . there are mules which can carry upto some height then after that you have to hike . Paths are narrow , it is the test of endurance. We stooped and had some tea and then tried to move up after sometime we were tried , it was 12PM , sun was shining , we abandoned our upward journey and started our desent through alpine forest.

One of the best experiences I have witnessed in real. The entire trek of 3.5 hrs which really was a good way to get a complete exercise to getting fit to getting to the main temple and get my inner peace in that environment, it was amazing.
