This morning, visit the Tiger’s Nest, perched on the side of a cliff, 900m above the Paro valley floor. This famous tiered temple of red and gold was founded by the Guru Rinpoche who arrived on the back of his mistress, who had turned herself into a tigress. It’s now visited by all Bhutanese at least once in their lifetime. Later drive up the valley to Drukgyel Dzong – a ruined fortress. Along the way, visit the 7th Century Kyichu Lhakhang temple, one of the 108 temples built in the Himalayas by Tibetan King, Songtsen Gampo. The building of this temple marks the introduction of Buddhism in Bhutan. This evening, enjoy a Celebration Dinner of Himalayan proportions, and toast the culmination of this extraordinary journey with your new found friends.
