If you can manage it is well worth the hike, we set off 7:30am as being in our 60s expected to take our time and we did, managed to get to the top 3:30 hours, fit people and... read more

If you can manage it is well worth the hike, we set off 7:30am as being in our 60s expected to take our time and we did, managed to get to the top 3:30 hours, fit people and locals can do it in half that time but it was worth every bead of sweat what a sight and sense of... More

Hiking to Taktsang was the reason we came to Bhutan. It was part of a 27 day 9 country adventure. I have bad knees and I'm not in the greatest of shape so I was a bit worried about being able to make the hike. For several months before going on this trip I walked on a treadmill for about... More

It's a great but a hard trek. It's almost a 3 hour journey up and down. The views from the top are amazing. One of the highlight from my Bhutan trip.

This is an absolutely beautiful hike but a very hard hike. You can take a horse half way up, but the grade from there is about 60 % . It's a very hard hike. Best thing is to start as early as possible. Breath taking views and awesome pictures. Once in a lifetime experience.

Easily the highlight of my visit to Bhutan. I was very fortunate to have a great guide Leki. His knowledge about Buddhism and the significance of monasteries studding the beautiful valleys and hills of Bhutan was very impressive. In his view the Tiger's Nest is the most revered monastery in Bhutan and every Bhutanese feels obliged to visit it at... More

Its the most important place in bhutan to visit. But the trek is quiet a long one and takes almost 4- 5 hours oneway. The view is quiet good from ground level also but trekking is a different experience

Many travelers to this wonderful country already know this but unfortunately I discovered during my trek to this most sacred of Bhutanese sites that there are those who do not hence this reminder. Trekking to the Tiger's Nest is on many bucket lists and if it is on yours, please keep this in mind before you climb.This is a spiritual... More

If you visit bhutan and miss this place to see, then your trip is not complete, Taktsang or Tiger's Nest is a treat to your eyes, the beautiful monastery on the edge of the cliff is a visual appeal.

Bhutan is a land of the mountains and when in Bhutan, if you miss the trek to Tiger's Nest, you have seen only half. The upward trek was physically exerting for most unless you are someone who regularly does cardio. The earlier start, say around 7 or 8 am, the better. I wouldn't suggest this for people with weak joints... More
