The Tiger's Nest Monastery

The Tiger's nest monastery located at above 10000 ft in Bhutan, is one of the architectural wonders of Asia.It is believed that Guru Rinpoche flew to this location from Tibet on the back of a tigress from Khenpajong.This place was consecrated to tame the Tiger demon. The difficult hike through the mountains and forests takes one's breath away but not more than what lies at the end of the path. Anyone who is visiting Asia,travelling to this location,the birthplace of Bhutanese Buddhism is a must.
