Tiger’s Nest (Paro Taktshang) Monastery is located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) to the north of the Bhutan’s town of Paro.

It hangs on a precipitous cliff at 3,120 metres (10,240 ft), about 900 metres (3,000 ft) above the Paro valley, and is one of the most important Buddhist sites in Bhutan.

Though it looks formidable, the monastery complex has access from several directions, including a northwest path through the forest, a southern path used by devotees, and even a mule track.

But the best way to visit is as part of Bhutan’s famed Chomo Lhari trek, which takes in the magnificent Himalayan scenery.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
