Photographer's Note

Takshang Lhakang (Tiger's Nest) one of Bhutan's most sacred monasteries, reputedly first set up by Guru Rinpoche who believed to be flew here on a tigress in the 8th century. One can reach here hiking or by pony ride.The Hike to Takshang gompa, at 900m above the floor of the Paro valley (2280m), is an achievement in itself - a four kilometre steep up-hill walk, one way, along mostly unpaved path.I enjoyed every bit of my hike and it took me almost one and half hour to reach there and when i did it was worth it.
