Depending on your arrival time, we can proceed for city sightseeing or relax in the hotel. If time permits, visit weekend market (Thu-Sun).

Day 3
Paro sightseeing

After our breakfast, drive to the base of trekking point, from here you will hike to Taktsang Monastery or often called Tiger Nest Temple, which is built around a cave in which Guru Rimpoche (also known as Guru Padmasambhava) meditated. The eighth century old monastery is perched on a rock overlooking a sheer drop and clings seemingly impossible to a cliff at 900m above the valley floor. Tiger Nest Temple is considered, one of the must visit places around the world before we die. The hike is almost 2 hours, uphill at 30 to 40 degree inclined for an average trekker however it might take full day for some depending on your pace. First of half of the hike pulls up to cafeteria feels never ending however from the half point due to magical structure at your close sight, you are energized to push further. You actually feel very near, push yourself little further you are at the feet of the Tiger Nest, filled with joys and happiness never like before. And on the way back, you can run down, its easy always. After the trek, since you will be totally exhausted you will end the day with perfect hot stone bath with dinner at the farmhouse.
