Morning drive Paro one hour and hike to the Taktsang Monastery viewpoint [4-5 hrs hiking]. Taktsang meaning “Tiger’s Nest” is built around a cave in which Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) meditated; it clings seemingly impossible to a cliff at 3000 feet above the valley floor. For the local people it is a place of pilgrimage, but for a tourist, a hike up to the viewpoint opposite the monastery can be exhausting, thrilling and mystical. The legend has it that Guru Rimpoche is said to have flown to the site of monastery on the back of tigress from Tibet and meditated in the cave there for three months.  Although the main building of the temple was destroyed by fire on 19 April 1998, the hike up to the viewpoint is still worth visit once in a lifetime. The restoration work has been completed and has been restored in its former glory. After hike dive further to Drukgyel Dzong. Which Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyel built in 1649. It caught fire in 1951.
