Taktsang Tour is one of the interesting Tour in Bhutan. It holds importance of Bhutan as it is also known to be the main pilgrimage site of Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche, during the 8th century. According to legend, he flew to this location from Tibet on the back of a tigress and consecrated to tame the Tiger demon. He then meditated at this very site for three months. It is said that the Bhutanese people must come to pilgrimage to Taktsang at least once in their life time. To reach Taktsang, we must hike, or rather trek for 2-3 hours. The hike up the mountain to the Monastery is not for the infirm, disabled, or lazy. It is strenuous, but incredibly rewarding.  At the entrance to Taktsang, there are 700 steps stairs that zig zags steeply. There is a giant water fall and in a tiny alter next to the small lake adjacent to the beautiful water fall is a small prayer wheel that turns. With each turn of the wheel, a bell is rung.
