Bhutan is one of the last areas still pristine in all its nature, where nature and people live in harmony. It’s a small buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. Festivals with mask dances depicting its great cultural past and Himalayan Ranges in the background definitely deserves a visit. Highest unclimbed mountain in the world, Gangkar Puensum (7,570-M) is also located in Bhutan. Besides Bhutan, Assam, Sikkim and Darjeeling are popular destinations located in the same Himalayan Belt.
Paro Taktsang (Dzongkha) also known as the Taktsang Palphug Monastery and the Tiger’s Nest) is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and the temple complex is located in the Cliffside of the upper Paro valley in Bhutan.A temple complex was first built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup cave where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours in the 8th century. Padmasambhava is credited with introducing Buddhism to Bhutan and is the tutelary deity of the country. Today, Paro Taktsang is the best known of the thirteen taktsang or “tiger lair” caves in which he meditated.
