Paro Taktsang

No trip to Bhutan would be complete without a visit to the Taktsang Goemba.

Paro Taktsang (also known as The Tiger's Nest) is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and temple complex, located on the cliffside of a mountain in the upper Paro valley in Bhutan. The temple complex was built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup cave, where Guru Padmasambhava, the Guru credited to introducing Buddhism in the country, is said to have meditated for a total of three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours in the 8th century.

It has been consecutively ranked in "The World's Top 40 Must Visit Places" by a number of travel magazines, including the National Geographic, Lonely Planet, and Traveller Magazine, and has become an iconic symbol of the country and of Bhutanese culture.
