Taktshang - The Tiger's Nest Monastery, Bhutan

This spectacular monastery is 900 metres above the floor of the Paro valley and is extraordinarily difficult to access. It is built on the site where, in 747 AD, Guru Rinpoche arrived in Bhutan flying on the back of a tigress, to introduce Buddhism into Bhutan.
