    So much has already been said about the Tigers nest. But to add my contribution. You are dropped off in the carpark and the initial climb is steady, up some steps but mainly earth, rocks and tree roots. You can rent a horse for the first part of the journey to the restaurant, but if you decide to walk, it takes, at a steady pace with frequent stops, about 90 mins. At the restaurant you get your first clear view of the Tigers Nest. From here it is a slightly steeper climb to a vantage point directly opposite the Tigers Nest a walk of about 45 mins, here is the best spot for photographs. From here it is approximately 250 steps down the mountain and then 250 steps back up to reach the Tigers Nest allow 30 minutes for this stretch. Once you reach the monastery you have to lock away your phone and cameras as these are not allowed inside. Once inside there are at least 8 separate temples all of which are colourful and full of Buddhas and other artifacts. Our guide told us that one particular temple was completely destroyed in the last fire the only thing to survive was the Buddha, which was untouched by the flames. We were lucky enough to arrive when a service was being undertaken by the Monks such a cacophony of chanting and music.

  • Jangtsa Dumgtseg Lhakhang [zlum brtshegs lha khang] is a Buddhist temple in western Bhutan. The temple is notable as it is in the form of a chorten, very rare in Bhutan. It is located on the edge of a hill between the Paro valley and the Dopchari valley, across the bridge from Paro. The Buddhist iconography depicted in the Chorten is considered a unique repository of the Drukpa Kagyu school.
