Trek to Tiger’s Nest – Paro, Bhutan


These are amazing photographs; too good to keep to myself so must reblog for the benefit of all my friends

Pursuing Wabi

One of the more famous sites in Bhutan is the Tiger’s Nest monastery (Paro Taktsang) located on the side of a cliff at 10,000 ft (3,120 meters). The hike to get there ascends 1,500 ft and takes 2 to 3 hours. You can take a horse part of the way up.

Prince William and Kate, did the same trek a few months earlier, along with their entourage including Kate’s hairdresser.

It was a rainy start and the trail was slick. First time I’ve experience seeing a horse lose its footing and start sliding down toward me – this happened a few times – fortunately for four legs they eventually stop their slide before taking me out. A few fell off their horse, including a couple staying the same hotel in the room below us.

In Bhutan, photography is not allowed inside any monastery.
