I climbed the 900m to Taktshang Goemba a monastery called ‘tigers nest’ altitude 3140m. The legend says that the Indian Buddhist Guru Rinpoche flew to the site on the back of a tigress to subdue a local demon and afterwards meditated in a cave at the site for three months. The monastery clings to the side of a cliff with a 900m sheer drop to the Paro valley below. It is a holy site with pilgrims from all over Bhutan taking the hike up every year. The only way to reach the monastery is to hike (2 to 3 hours each way) or ride a horse but you would have to be very brave to ride a horse along this path which has a sheer drop to the valley floor. This picture shows tigers nest anchored to the cliff face - by the hairs of female celestial beings, so tradition says.
