Taksang Monastery Bhutan


Bhutan, the land of the peaceful thunder dragon, lies among the highest mountains on earth. Like Tibet, this remote and ancient mountain kingdom was closed to foreigners for many years, but has now opened its doors to a limited number of travelers each year. The secluded kingdom of Bhutan is a remarkable country, with a vibrant yet beautifully preserved orthodox culture, a land full of grandeur and peace and unparalleled views of the Himalayan peaks. Our journey starts in Paro, and takes us to the capital Thiumpu, the ancient capital Punakha, and on to Gangtey, Trongsa, Bumthang, Ura and Wangdue. We will visit and explore monasteries, ancient fortresses (dzongs), temples, and traditional Bhutanese houses, with time to wander through the fascinating markets. We also drive through picturesque landscapes of spectacular mountain ranges, lush green valleys and pine and cedar forests. We cross the Dochola Pass, which offers panoramic views of the Himalayas, and also the Black Mountains, which divide east and west Bhutan. Returning to Paro, we will visit the beautiful Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest), found high above the valley floor, clinging precariously to the rock cliff. A fascinating end to a journey which takes in the highlights of the mysterious kingdom of Bhutan, often referred to as the “living museum” of the world.

Paro Taktsang is the popular name of Taktsang Palphug Monastery also known as The Tiger's Nest, a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and temple complex, located in the Cliffside of the upper Paro valley, Bhutan. A temple complex was first built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup cave where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for three months in the 8th century. Padmasambhava is credited with introducing Buddhism to Bhutan and is the tutelary deity of the country. Today, Paro Taktsang is the best known of the thirteen taktsang or "tiger lair" caves in which he meditated.
