Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.Located in the Paro valley of Bhutan, the eponymous town of Paro is dotted with several historical sites. Paro is the perfect destination for anyone who prefers to spend time by themselves in the lap of nature, far from the madding crowd. The main street is adorned with colourful wooden shops, houses and restaurants. The Taktsang Palphug Monastery popularly known as Paro Taktsang is a Buddhist temple situated in the upper portion of the Paro Valley and is a beautiful monastery. Guru Padmasambhava, who introduced Buddhism to Bhutan, meditated here for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours. You will be able to witness the famous dzong style of architecture if you visit Rinpung Dzong, which is an intricate wooden structure made of large beams that are held together without a single nail! The National Museum of Bhutan is actually a ‘ta dzong’ (meaning Watchtower) that was later renovated to host the museum. Shaped like a conch shell, the museum has an excellent collection of Buddhist thangkas. However, note that you will not be allowed to enter with a camera, but you can click pictures of the building and its surrounding areas.
Fly by Druk Air/Bhutan Airline to Paro, Bhutan. On a clear day the panoramic views of the Himalaya are sensational, including Everest (if you are flying from Delhi and Kathmandu), but particularly exciting is the approach through the Bhutanese foothills and the landing, including a few steep turns to land at the tiny airstrip of Paro. Once you arrive in Paro, you will be received by our representative and guide who will transfer you to your hotel. Upon arrival, proceed for check-in at your hotel. Depending on your arrival time you will visit Rinpung Dzong and Kichu Lhakhang.
In the morning hike to Taktsang Monastery. Taktsang meaning Tiger Nest, temple is built around a cave in which Guru Rimpoche (also known as Guru Padmasambhava) meditated. The eighth century monastery is perched on a rock overlooking a sheer drop and clings seemingly impossible to a cliff of rock at 9678 feet above the valley floor. For the local people it is a place of pilgrimage, but for a tourist, a hike up to the viewpoint opposite the monastery is exhausting, thrilling and mystical. It takes almost 2 hours to walk up at an average pace. The legend has it that Guru Rimpoche is said to have flown to the site of the monastery on the back of a tigress from Tibet and meditated in the cave there for three months. Although the main building of the temple was destroyed by fire on April 1998, it rebuilt to former glory in 2001. The hike up to the viewpoint is worthwhile and fulfilling.
