Note: Negs: quite a bit is a dullish trudge at altitude in scrubby trees

Level of Difficulty: Strenuous

Key information: Tiger's Nest

  • Famous walk to Taktshang Goempa (Tiger's Nest), Bhutan's best known (if not finest) and most dramatically situated monastery, clinging to a cleft in a sheer cliff 900m above the Paro valley. An inspiring walk to a tremendous place.
  • The initial trudge up the hillside, through scrubby trees but with increasingly fine views across the fertile valley toward the surrounding hills, can seem like a bit of a tedious slog, especially if you are newly arrived at this altitude, but the first glimpse of the monastery dispels all doubts.

The Lonely Planet has helpful information on this trek.

Recently did this. A must if visiting Bhutan. I recommend doing it at the end of your visit as it is a perfect way to end your visit. Takes about two hours to get to the stairs. Then there are about 700 stairs to the monastery. A bit quicker back. For those who cannot walk all that well, donkeys can be hied for part of the journey. A nice cafe about half way. Doable by most people just take your time/
