Tigers Nest is an amazing place. This is probably the highlight of our tour and is one place that we would put the Must See list for Bhutan. The day was slightly overcast. Although it had rained on and off during the week that we were in Bhutan, it did not rain and was pleasant. We began our trip around... More

I never did any hiking in my life. Even for Vaishnodevi I went by horse and helicopter. I was really surprised that how reached there.I Think,this place is very divine. Nearly 9000ft. Wonderful experience. Nobody can think,that there is a waterfalls at the corner which can not be seen until you reach down. It is very difficult to enter inside... More

Visited this place few days back. It takes around 2-3 hours tracking to reach this temple. avoid during monsoon because of mud you might slip. and be prepared for tracking. good view from top. good place for photography.

We spent the better part of the day here, didn't rush up and down like most visitors seem to do. So take your time and enjoy the place, the walk is fairly easy if paced out.

This is the star attraction during Bhutan trip and not to be missed at any cost. The hike to the monastery is challenging but not very difficult if you maintain reasonable pace and not rush. Throughout the hike, we saw great landscape and scenic views all around. One can ride on horse up to half way point but we recommend... More

A magical and legendary monastery located a good hike up the mountain from Paro. Wear supportive hiking boots and bring lots of drinking water. Earlier morning arrivals allow for the best photos as the light gets hazy later in the day.

Trip to Bhutan will be incomplete without Tracking at Tiger's Nest.(Monastery) It is about 3000+meter Up and takes around 2.0 hours+. Keep Water together, as nothing much available onroute. Amazing View from the Top as well as On-route. Best of Experience and not to miss it!

Taktsang is a very important monastery for Bhutan. It has a great historic value. Trek is not that difficult. Total trek time up & down would take anything between 3.5 Hrs to 5 Hrs. Dont eat too much before the trek.
