If there is one place to see in Bhutan, this is it...spectacularly perched on the face of a mountain, high up in the clouds. Take a slow walk up, enjoy the trail and greenery, and feel on-top-of-the world and out-of-the-world at the same time.

I am in my mid-fifties, somewhat overweight and have asthma. I walked up with one of the Bhutanese lecturers and two Bhutanese university students. They held my hands when I got... More

AWESOME !!!! Must visit once in lifetime. GOD is here. Its a difficult hiking so my advise is to keep walking for at least 8 to 10 kms for 30 days before you you reach Paro Taktsang Monastery.

This was one of the more tiring and hence the most fulfilling treks. It was cold! and started snowing mid-way. We didn’t take a guide and were greeted generally by almost everyone on the way. A MUST DO for every traveller.
