Visiting the Tiger's Nest Monastery has been high on my bucket list for so many years and I was fortunate enough to visit it twice during my recent trip to Bhutan with my husband. It is a truly magical place. The first time we visited we started early in the morning, around 8.30 a.m. from the car park. It was... More

A beautiful walk-take your time and walk on the inside of the path to avoid the horses and the steep drop to the valley below. Wide pathway most of the way but steep and boulder so take a hiking stick or hire one for 50rupees from the local ladies at the start point by the tourist tat shops. Yes even... More

The trek up to Tigers Nest -Taktsang Palphug Monastery - only increases ones respect for those who constructed this amazing building nestled high on a cliff face above Paro. The temples and Buddhist statues are mesmerising and steeped in history. Leave early to make the arduous climb when it is cooler but also to allow plenty of time to explore... More

A beautiful and picturesque place and a must do in Bhutan but a little bit of fitness level is required to do this trek. Both up and down is more then 10 km plus almost 1000 mts gradient but if one is able to achieve this,its really worth it.

Tiger's Nest does not disappoint. Every bit as beautiful as the photos that lure us there. Rode the horse to the drop off point, partly for a fun experience, partly because my knees were aching. Very scenic hike. Up was hard on the lungs, down hard on the knees, but worth every step. Trekking poles were helpful, and dress in... More

Moderately difficult hike and absolutely worth the effort Highlight of our trip. Stunning scenery We only had a day and a half to acclimate before doing the hike and we live at sea level so the altitude made it a difficult for us but it was definitely doable. Aside from that it wasn't a hard hike. Took us about 3.5-4... More

Tigers Nest monastery is on a cliff of a mountain which is at 3000 meters altitude. I with my wife hiked from the car parking to the view point. It took around two hours to reach there. Put on a good shoe, unless you will feel pain on foot. The views from there are splendid. I highly recommend it for... More

The monastery perched on a cliff is well worth the effort--and given the steepness and elevation, it is a considerable effort for most. The views are splendid. The temple interiors worth experiencing. Even the cafeteria halfway up is good. Unless you are physically unable or unwilling to make the climb, it would be a mistake to miss this experience if...
