Day Three: Paro

Today we will walk up to Tiger’s Nest. It is a whole day program. The monastery is the most famous in the country and recently has been listed one of the ten holiest places in the world. This is one of the highlights of the trip. The monastery is perched on the high cliff of 900 meters above the floor of Paro valley. It is named Tiger’s nest because guru Rimpoche is said to have flown to the site on the back of tigress in the 18th century. The five-hour walk to the monastery involving some intense but rewarding climb over 900m cleanses both body and soul. After lunch in the Taktsang cafeteria, on our way back to the hotel, we will stop in a farm house and experience the hot stone bath.
