The Tiger's Nest
The Tiger's Nest is a a wonder to behold, built on the side of a vertical cliff. It is made up of several small temples, built on a cave said to be where Padmasambhava flew to on the back of a tigress. We take the scenic route to get there, via the Bumdra trek.
The capital of Bhutan is one of the smallest in the world. The best way to see Thimphu is to take one of the excellent hiking trails above the city with fine views of the valley. The downtown area offers some good bookshops, some interesting souvenir shops and the odd coffee shop. The best places for people watching are the excellent weekend market and the Changlimithang Archery Ground.
Walking at Altitude
We take you high up on the mountains around Paro, Thimphu, Haa and Punakha on walks that offer spectacular views. The walking is challenging at times but hugely satisfying, as we incorporate two short treks into our Walking With The Thunder Dragon trip
