We’ve saved the best of Bhutan for the last. Today you’ll experience Bhutan’s most valued attractions, and perhaps one of the major highlights of your trip. An excursion to the famous Taktshang monastery – translated as Tiger’s nest monastery. A two hours hike would reward you with a spectacular temple clinging to a 1000 feet cliff. The temple was built in 1692 by a prominent historical figure named Gyaltse Tenzin Rabgye whose reincarnation is now a young teenager and already a prominent figure in the clergy. Your guide will complement the experience with its story.
In the evening, explore Paro town on foot and sample the various handicrafts and art centers. Visit a farmhouse to soak in a herbal hot-stone bath that is known to be therapeutic and helps ailments related to joints and muscle aches, besides simply soothing your mind and body.
