Tigers Nest Monastery
Perched 3,000 feet above Bhutan on the side of a sheer rock cliff, Tiger’s Nest is one of the most popular pilmagrages in Bhutan.
Padmasambhava, popularly known as Guru Rinpoche visited and sanctified Bhutan in the 8th century. Legend has it that Guru Rinpoche flew to this site on a tigress’ back to subdue a local demon.
Our eminently able &Beyond guide, Tashi Grugg, had us start the climb early in the morning. He has done the climb over 100 times. Sheesh!
