A 2-1/2 hour journey for the average human, add 30+ minutes for the non-average American (taking into account the extra poundage from a sedentary life style), a moderately steep climb to the cafeteria, then many stairs down to a crook in the valley, then about half as many stairs up to the monastery, and you are there, at 10,240 ft., at the most sacred place in Bhutan, Paro Taksang, or the Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Paro, Bhutan. Breathe. Photo copyright SCH, 2017.
