Anchoring the eastern end of the Himalayas, Bhutan showcases the very best of mother nature — picture dense forests, deep valleys and cloud-piercing peaks.
Travelers typically land in Paro, home to the country’s only international airport. The historic town is nestled in a verdant valley, surrounded by ancient Buddhist temples and monasteries.
The most notable is Paro Taktsang (also known as Tiger’s Nest Monastery), a sacred site that seems to cling to a cliff in the upper Paro Valley.
Aglow with white facades, gold-plated domes and rust-red accents, the 17th-century temple sits alongside a cave network, known as a sacred meditation site.
The steep, two-hour pilgrimage to the monastery is challenging, but the payoff is unforgettable.
