The Tiger Nest Monastery (also known as Taktsang Goemba) is the most famous monastery in Bhutan. Perched beautifully on top of a cliff, the Tiger Nest is indeed a wonder to those who managed to reach there. One can only imagine the architectural prowess required to build the monastery back in the year 1692.

The trek up to Tiger Nest Monastery itself takes around 2-3 hours (depending on the speed of your ascend). The trek is advisable to start early in the morning as the monks will be having lunch from 1 – 2 pm. During this time, the monastery will be closed for all visitors.
