Taktsang Lhakhang or the Tiger's Nest

Taktsang Lhakhang or the Tiger's Nest in Central Bhutan

This monastery is one of the most sacred pilgrim sites for every Bhutanese, it's build atop a cliff, overlooking the Paro Valley. Most unfortunately early in 1998, the monastery suffered a fire. However, the pelpbug, or the holy cave, in which Guru Rinpoche meditated was found intact and safe. The reconstruction of the monastery to its original magnificence is already in process. It's definitely a worth walking or pony ride up to the viewpoint. Enjoy local cuisines at the delightful cafeteria situated at a wonderful vantage point below the monastery. Kindly note, there is no pony ride down, one would have to walk down from the viewpoint.
