Its definitely the best place in Paro. The hike was worth. Make sure you start your day early so that you beat the heat while you are hiking up towards the monastery. This place is also known as Tigers Nest. You can also take ponnies to climb up but uptil a point from you can have a bird's eye view... More

The 11 days trip to Bhutan with friends is something unforgettable made by Bhutan Exclusive Expeditions and the Sonam our guide who made the trip successful with his knowledge and entertainment all the time. Each and every sites we visited is more private and luxury. The time and schedule is always flexible with such a big group.

There's nothing to not like. The climb provides some of the most memorable views. Our 8 year old son could do it on foot. The upward climb was covered in around 2 hours. Do hire sticks (we didn't) at the start. They are helpful in case it rains as the track becomes very slippery on way down.

With the base a few kilometres from the Paro airport, the Tiger's Nest is a must visit attraction. It can be a challenging trek up to the monastery - travel light, wear comfortable clothes with plenty of protection against the sun and practical footwear. Ponies can be hired at the base and they take you to within 45-60 minutes walking... More

Its a relatively short trek along the breath taking view. It can be difficult with small kids. A must if you visit Bhutan.

As all the comments and the reviews says it is a spiritual journey don't get put off by the hike take your time, my suggestion would be start early 6:30-7 so that you can beat the rush later on and the heat also ...the trick is to climb slowly and keep going the moment you see the monastery you won't...

It is a challenging trek till the top. But it is worth every step and each and every drop of sweat! It will be challenging. Taking a guide along with you will be good, as they can tell when a person is about to become unwell because of the altitude and excursion and ask them to stop the trek. It... More

If you come to bhutan and dont come here 5hen u ll regret it thru out your life. A mystic lakhang. Also called tigers nest, it is based on the legend how guru arrived there on a tiger and silenced the devil there. Appox 1.5 hrs walk up, you need strong calf muscles!😊
