You cannot visit Bhutan without completing this trail, its tough going but there are plenty of places to stop and take a look at the surrounding scenery to catch your breath! Avoid using the horses as we heard story after story of people suffering injuries due to the horses losing footing or being nudged by horses descending, they tend to... More

The trek to Tigers nest starts off mundanely gradually uphill through the foothill. In a while we turn a few bends and thereby we see the monastery clinging to the cliffside high up in the clouds! What a sight! How are we ever going to reach up there? The path is clean and broad. There are quite a few tourists... More

A trip to Bhutan is incomplete without a trip to the Tigers nest. A trek up to the monastry is the most beautiful experience. The walk up is on a muddy terrain. My suggestion to people would be to wear some good shoes, carry a jacket as it gets cold and start early. The locals recommended us to start at... More

The Taktsang Monastery means the Tigers Nest. It's a moderate trek...this was the second time that I was doing the trek having done it a year before. The first time it took me about 6 to 7 hours to go up and come back. This time though we completed the trek in 4 hours total. It is a great experience... More

It's a lovely trek up the hill. There is an amazing waterfall just beside the monastery. It took 2.5 hours to reach up. Tip: Start very early around 7.30 so that you are up before monastery gets closed for noon break.

This was a really interesting place to visit. It is a series of Padmasmabhava meditation caves that date back to 16th century. The hermitage is at about 3120 meters from sea level and there are lots of steps and climbing involved. From thousands of prayer flags along the way to mountainous scenery caressed by soft white cloud within blue sky,... More

Long trek up and down but can be done slowly - just remember that the temple closes between 1pm-2pm and time your arrival accordingly. Stunning architecture. Well worth the hike! Lives up to its hype.

It's a pretty steep hike so take your time and do it bit by bit. You get a real sense of achievement when you get there and it seems even more beautiful once you've reached it after a bit of a struggle! Overheard a few tourist groups saying they hope a road or cable car it put in. I can... More
