Hiking to Tiger's Nest is one of the highlights of Bhutan. It is becoming crowed and dusty, but always nice to hike and get the feeling of the tiger nest when you reach at the last view point.

This attraction is highlight of your Bhutan visit. The monastery nestled on such cliff makes you wonder how they built it; worth the 3 hours return hike.

Do go for this trek...and don’t give up unless you have a health issue. It’s worth it when you get to the top.

We take around two hours to climb, stay at Tigers Nest around one hour. In the descend we lunch at the bar, in middle way. And walk slowly down. An unforgettable day!

Because of the mountains, mobile internet can be spotty and inconsistent depending on which part of the trek you are.
