High above the Paro valley, Taktsang Monastery built on the sheer cliff face above 3000 meters is a spectacular sight to behold. It is also an important pilgrimage site for the Buddhists. It is said that great Guru Rinpoche had flown here on the back of tigresses when he bought the teaching of Buddhist Dharma in Bhutan in the eighth century. He then meditated in the cave for 3 months where the monastery was built.
The trail to Taktsang is broad and the walk is approximately 2 hours uphill which will take you almost a kilometer above the Paro valley.
