“Tiger's Nest” amidst the morning mist.

On 2.7.2916 morning I took a hike to "Tiger's Nest" or "Taktsang" as popularly called by the locals in Bhutan, to capture the monastery amidst the morning mist . "Taktsang" is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site, hanging on a precipitous cliff at 3,120 metres (10,240 ft).
