Day 5 Tiger Nest Monastery

 

                                    Morning, hike to Taktsang Monastery view point. Taktsang, meaning "Tiger's nest," is built
                                    around a cave in which Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhawa/Second Buddha) mediated,
                                    clings seemingly impossible to a cliff of rock at 3,000 feet above the valley floor.
                                    For the local people it is a place of pilgrimage, but for a tourist, a hike up to the
                                    view point opposite the monastery is exhausting, thrilling and mystical.
                                    The legend has it that Guru Rimpoche is said to have flown to the site of the
                                    monastery on the back of a tigress from Tibet and meditated in the cave there for three months.  
                                    One can also continue the hike and visit the Monastery. 

                                    Afternoon Visit the 200 year old watch tower and evening free for shopping.
