Breathtaking Bhutan

This photo capture the moment my friends and I reached the end of our hike to Paro Taktsang, Bhutan. Paro Taktsang literally means Tigers Nest, or lair. Taktsang is built around a cave in a mountain in which the local buddhists believe that 8th- century Indian Buddhist master, Guru Padmasambava had meditated in. This monastery clings to the rock face of this beautiful mountain at 800 meters above Paro valley.
