Paro Taktsang/Tiger's Nest/Taktsang Palphug Monastery Bhutan

Located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) to the north of Paro and hangs on a precipitous cliff at 3,120 metres (10,240 ft), about 900 metres (3,000 ft) above the Paro valley on the right side of the Paro River. The rock slopes are very steep (almost vertical) and the monastery buildings are built into the rock face. I am a regular trekker with an above average stamina but this track was tiring for me too . it was one of the most difficult and most awe inspiring place . Imagine this was build couple of thousands year back without any of the modern day tool . you will know whey its surreal .
