We have saved the best for the last. Get your energy up at breakfast this morning for a hike to the iconic Tiger’s Nest Monastery. Venture through the pristine surrounding of the monastery resting on a cliff.

Be rewarded to the overwhelming sight of the monastery perched on a cliff at 3,120 meters above sea level and 900 meters above Paro valley. Tiger’s Nest or Taktsang acquires its name from the legend of its foundation, when in the 8th Century Guru Rinpoche, widely revered as the second Buddha, arrived from Tibet flying across the mountains on the back of a tigress and meditated here for three months. He blessed and preached tantric Buddhism in Bhutan.

I was contact person for organising our trip. The company always gave clear and prompt response to all my ems. Flexible in package options and organised all the necessary documentation and flights, even sent us boarding passes for flights. Our guide Namgay was very informative, knowledgeable and helpful in every possible way. Our driver was very careful and both guide and driver were friendly and accommodating . Hotels were very good.
We visited lots of places and thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
Would recommend this company to anyone
Thinley was very helpful from even before the trip. He helped us book great places to stay and we are especially happy we took his recommendation with Aum Damchoe. He was always available on call to guide us through our trip, be it from which phone connection to take, to where are the nicest places to eat. We are coming back and let's actually meet in person on our next trip. Thank you for everything Thinley.

We planned our trip at the last minute and found this tour company through TripAdvisor. The main thing I remembered from the reviews was the prompt response and communication which we received as well.
The trip itinerary was customized for our short time frame so that we could see the most number of things. Our guide, Phurba and driver were very good. Phurba’s assistance in obtaining last minute route permit to Dolchala pass and in climbing tiger nest was invaluable. We also got to see a local archery tournament.
We also got to meet the owners who gave us thoughtful souvenirs. Overall we had a great trip and would recommend Bhutan Best Inbound Tour.
