Bhutan Tiger's Nest Tour – Short, Scenic and Glimpse of the Ancient Kingdom with Locals!

Bhutan Tiger Nest tourBhutan Tiger nest tour offers a rare insight of the entire country of Bhutan including Paro, Thimpu and the breath-taking hike to the famous Tiger’s Nest Monastery, situated high above the valley and built into a sheer cliff face.

Tiger’s Nest Monastery is believed to be the birthplace of Buddhism in Bhutan, making it the most sacred monastery in the country. Precariously perched high up on a sheer cliff a dizzying 10,000 feet/3,048 meter above sea level, it certainly also has the most stunning and fascinating location.

The name Tiger Nest came through the legend that in 8th century Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava and one of the holiest figure in Mahayana Buddhism, flew to this exact spot from Tibet on a back of a tigress (who was a manifestation of his divine consort). He came to subdue a demon and then took residence in a cave where he meditated for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days. He then started the conversion of Bhutanese into Buddhism. The monastery was built in 1692 around the cave where Guru meditated. Today, it is a cultural icon of Bhutan. A trip to Bhutan is not complete without a visit to this sacred site.
