Our favourite things to see and do in Bhutan

Walk to Taktsang Monastery - the Tiger’s Nest

Taktsang, or the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, is Bhutan’s most famous attraction and one of its most sacred sites. Perched on the side of cliff some 600m above the Paro Valley, the only way to get close is on foot. It’s a steep walk uphill to reach the monastery's gates, but it’s worth the effort to capture that classic image and to enjoy the stunning views.
