Travel Guides and trips for tiger s nest paro bhutan

Bhutan has gradually become a popular tourist destination. And if you are visiting Bhutan, you can't possibly miss the lovely city of Paro. Considered to be one of the most beautiful valleys in Bhutan, it is definitely a must visit! A perfect mix of culture, beauty, nature and history, Paro offers you an experience unlike another. Do visit the unofficial Taktsang Monastery or Tiger's Nest, which is a delight for trekkers and explorers! Located on a hill, the trek to this monastery is something you'll always remember. Do carry water, wear proper shoes before you start your trek lest the number of halts increases your trek time. Another wonderful place to visit is the National Museum of Bhutan which is located in a former watch tower and hosts a collection of artefacts tracing the history of Bhutan. Among other places to visit, Rinpung Dzong and Drakhapo are definitely worth visiting. The Paro market is also a great place to explore and makes for a perfect location for an evening stroll. If you don't want to stay in the city, Paro is where you should head to. The lush valleys here are a delight to explore and the streams and meadows are nothing less than a postcard.
Best time to visit Paro is from September to October

Taktsang Trail, Bhutan
This is going to be the highlight of your trip to this majestic country. The Tiger's Nest or the Takstang Monastery is the highest rated trek in Bhutan located at the height of 10,000ft. Expect a 3-4 hour climb, which is medium-difficulty, but gets difficult right after you reach midway. It is advisable to start early so that you can spend time in and around the monastery. Make sure you buy a walking stick that is available at the base. It shall come handy during the trek! After a steep climb, you will be descending and climbing around 850 steps to the majestic view of the Taktsang Monastery. Do abstain from taking selfies while you're climbing the stairs as fatal accidents have been reported.

This monastery hangs on a precipitous cliff about 900 metres above the Paro is also known as Tiger's nest. It got its name from a legend which says that Padmasambhava (Guru who meditated in this place) flew to this location from Tibet on the back of a tigress from Khenpajong. This place was consecrated to tame the Tiger demon.The scenic beauty and the location of this monastery is astounding and if lucky you can spot a snow leopard in the neighbouring area during winters.PLACE- 10 km trek from Paro valley, Bhutan.

Weekend Getaways from Paro  

We chose to arrive in Lhasa by travelling on the world’s highest railway, a journey of breath-taking beauty that lasts 24 hours from the Chinese city of Xining, and crosses the Tanggula Passat 5072m. Arriving late at night, we were greeted by our guide in Lhasa with khatags, the white silk ceremonial scarf that is commonly given in Tibet as a sign of welcome. This was the first of many khatags we received. Lhasa literally means 'The abode of the gods'.
