Bhutan is a small landlocked country in the Eastern Himalayas bordered by China in the North and India on the
other 3 sides. Bhutan has a total land area of 38,394 square kilometers and measures approximately 150 kilometers
North to South and 300 kilometers East to West. The landscape is characterized by rugged terrain and steep
mountain valleys ranging from 150 meters in the sub-tropical valleys in the southern foothills, through temperate
zone to heights exceeding 7000 meters in the alpine regions of the mountainsBesides the stunning natural scenery,
the enduring image of the country for most visitors is the strong sense of culture and tradition that binds the
kingdom and clearly distinguishes it from its larger neighbors. Bhutan is the only Vajrayana Buddhist nation in the
world, and the profound teachings of this tradition remain well preserved and exert a strong influence in all
aspects of life. Due to its pristine environment and harmonious society, the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan has been
called “The Last Shangrila.”

    the valley. The hike will take about 2 hours uphill for an average hiker. Also we will visit
    the famous Paro festival. Tiger Nest Monastery: Precariously perched on the edge of a 1,200 meter cliff, this monastery creates an impressive sight, and is the unofficial symbol of Bhutan. It is about 2-3 hour, totally up-hill hike from the parking lot to the monastery, though there is a cafe located on ridge across from the Taktsang (about 90 minutes into the walk) that provides a welcome opportunity to take a rest and purchase refreshments and snacks. The hike up to the Tiger’s Nest can be very strenuous and you can rent a horse to bring up the mountain . The horse ride is a one-way trip (this is recommended if you are not very fit and may face altitude sickness) and you have to make your way down the mountain by foot. Taktsang was established as a sacred place for meditation by Guru Rinpoche who visited the site on his second visit to Bhutan in 747 CE, though the first monastery was not constructed until 1694. In 1998 a tragic fire destroyed most of the original buildings, but these have since been painstakingly restored to their former glory.
