Final destination of out trip in Bhutan was Taktsang Palphug Monastery, also known as Tiger's Nest. This famous monastery is located near to Paro and hangs on a cliff at altitude of 3120 m above the sea or 700 m above Paro valley.
According to the legend, a former wife of an emperor, known as Yeshe Tsogyal, willingly became a disciple of Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambahva) in Tibet. She transformed herself into a tigress and carried the Guru on her back from Tibet to the present location of the Taktsang in Bhutan. In one of the caves here, the Guru then performed meditation and emerged in eight incarnated forms and the place became holy.
The hike from base camp to the monastery takes about 3 hours. It's also possible to rent a horse which will bring you to the middle of the way, but we decided to walk on our own
The monastery could be seem far away.
