Tiger's Nest

One of the highlights of any trip to Bhutan is Taksang (or Tiger’s Nest), a temple that sits cliff side high above the Paro Valley floor. Needless to say, it is a wonderful temple and great view over Paro Valley. As you approach the temple, you cannot help but admire the view and ask yourself how did they build this thing on the side of a cliff. This is the view of Tiger's Nest from about half-way up and it was one of those (quite rare) moments when I wish I would have carried my telelens with me.
