Getting to the famous "Tigers Nest" or "Paro Taktsang" requires a 3 hours walk around 10km north of Paro. The monastery is hanging on a cliff at 3120meters and the walk you do elevates around 900meters. The best is to walk early as the monastery only has got direct sun on it at around 08:00 in the morning. We had to gamble as the rain season was in full swing during our visit- we were lucky though!
