How far can you see before the far valley becomes lost in the blue distance? How much silence can you hear?
You wind your way upwards through scented pine forests and the view becomes more impressive with every step. The valley floor seems dizzyingly small. Yet above you is the Tiger’s Nest – the ancient fortified monastery Taktsang Monastery that has somehow become attached to the vertical cliff wall. It is picture postcard perfect – the image you see when you close your eyes and imagine legendary mountain castles.
You cannot imagine how people can reach, let alone build such a marvel. It must be the work of the gods, or the nest of some mythical flying tiger. Yet, from Amankora Paro, you can visit it.
