Sitting precariously 900 meters above the Paro valley, the Paro Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest Monastery) was built in the late 17th century on the site of a cave set into the cliff. Although we call it the Tiger’s Nest in English, Taktsang more accurately translates to “tigress’ lair” and aptly gets its name from the legend of its founding.

According to that legend, the 8th-century Indian Buddhist master Guru Rinpoche was carried up the mountain on the back of a disciple who had transformed herself into a tigress. Once they arrived, Guru Rinpoche then spent 3 years, 3 months, 3 days, and 3 hours meditating in the cave. After he had finished, it became a holy place and became known as Paro Taktsang.

Day 9Paro to Airport and See Off.

Today we bid farewell to the guest and drop you at the airport.
