Tiger's Nest (Taktsang Monastery) >>
5 km away from the Namsay Choeling Resort and further two-hour hike from the base of the cliff. The monastery is built on a scary and stiff cliff. The monastery is also the most popular site in Bhutan for tourists and locals alike. In Bhutanese belief, one must visit once in their lifetime to this sacred monastery. The hike to the monastery makes a splendid half-day excursion.
Kila Goenpa Nunnery >>
Located below Chelela, after travelling 27 km from Paro. It is a peaceful home for Buddhist nuns who have dedicated their lives to spiritual fulfilment and lead undisturbed lives of religious studies, prayer and meditation. Kila, ‘a subjugating spiritual dragger that destroys the negativity’.
