      Bikers Of Assam at Tiger Nest Monastery Bhutan - Maha Roadtrip International

      6th Oct 2014, Day 6

      Bikers of Assam's Tiger's Nest Trek

      When I opened my eyes in the morning, it was still dark but everyone was excited and getting ready for the Tiger's Nest Trekking. I quickly got freshen up and dressed up. We could see some snow cliffed mountain tops outside our window. The locals said we couldnt ride there but can do trekking. Trekking to that unknown snow cliffed mountain was out of question even I doubt that we could reach the Paro Taktsang.

      The popular name of Taktsang Palphug Monastery (also known as Tiger's Nest)
      A prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and temple complex, located in the cliffside of the upper Paro valley, in Bhutan. A temple complex was first built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup Cave where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated in the 8th century. Padmasambhava is credited with introducing Buddhism to Bhutan. Today, Paro Taktsang is the best known of the thirteen taktsang or "tiger lair" caves in which he meditated. The monastery is located 10 kilometers to the north of Paro and hangs on a precipitous cliff at 10,240 ft, about 3,000 ft above the Paro valley.

      We started our journey to Paro Taktsang at 6.30 AM. We left our bags and protective gears except the Helmets in the room. On the way we had our breakfast and reached the parking place at 9AM where there were few stalls. The shopkeeper lady asked to buy something and she will give discount as I was her first customer. I liked some traditional ornaments for my sister and girlfriend but when the lady told they were made from Yak Bones I gave up the idea. I bought a Metal Door Knocker with Elephant Head design.

      We continued walking and reached the 850 steps leading up to the monastery entrance. Taktsang could be seen clearly. We clicked some photos and continued to walk the path was narrow. We crossed Dakini Waterfall and reached Taktsang at 1.30PM. Cameras and Mobile Phones were not allowed inside Taktsang.

      The environment inside Taktsang was very quiet and peaceful. The aroma of scented incense aggarbati filled the cold air. You can hear the occasional chants from monks nearby. The spirituality of the monastery is omnipresent. There were several rooms. Each of the rooms is ornate and decked out with images of Buddhist deities and fresh offerings of food and money. I asked a monk and went to the cave where the Guru Padmasambhava meditated. I offered some money and prayed. A monk gave some holy water to drink and sweets to eat. I was very hungry and it tasted like the tastiest sweet in the world. I visited several other temples in the monastery, butter lamp room and Tiger Nest Cave. We started to return back. On the way we refilled our water bottles in Dakini Falls.

      We were walking slowly accompanied by some local guides, monks and a family from Kolkatta. We reached the Cafeteria ate Biscuits, Juice and Water. We continued to walk downhill leaving the family in the Cafeteria. After few minutes I realized one of my hand gloves is missing. I began to walk back in search of my glove all alone, on the way we meet the family they said they saw my gloves in the Cafeteria but they said it will take more than 30mins to reach there. I continued to walk back, the path was deserted. I met a security guard who advised me to return back as the area turns dangerous with wild animals at night. I took the advice and with one hand gloves as for memories I returned back to my friends who were waiting near the bikes. I bought a designer knife from the stalls near the parking area and reached the small restaurant. We had a hot bowl of magi and reached the hotel back at 6.30PM. I wanted to roam the market again and visit the local disco but was very tired. We had our dinner and slept.

          Bikers Of Assam at Buddha Point Thimphu Bhutan - Maha Roadtrip International

          7th Oct 2014, Day7

          When we woke up in the morning, we dint want to get up from the bed, we were tired and week. Slowly everyone got up and we started our journey to the capital of Bhutan-Thimphu. We visited the Buddha Point. This is one of the most happening points in Thimphu. It is locally named Buddha Point but the actual name is Kuensel Phodrang. It is called the Buddha point because the largest statue of Buddha in the country sits there.

          We visited the handicraft stalls near the Immigration Office Thimphu. There are more than fifty stall will all handmade items like Kira (traditional dress), scarves, purse, hand bags, wooden masks, lockets etc. Even they were costly but I bought three scarves.

          We started our return journey at 4PM. On the way we brought some fresh local Apples from a roadside market. We had our dinner in the same restaurant we had few days ago and continued our journey through the cold dangerous zig-zag roads in the night and reached Gedu at 9PM. More than Hundreds of Pretty Girls were celebrating their College Foundation Day in the Streets near the Guest House. We saw their dance for some time and went to sleep.

                  We drank some water and splashed water in our face and started riding. We reached Wild Reach Eco Resort, Kaziranga. The same resort where we stayed on our first night during Maha Roadtrip 2013. We had our lunch, took some rest and started our journey again. After few hrs we started feeling sleepy again. We reached Bokakhat and stopped for a tea break. Bokakhat is famous for the delicious Pera. We had tea with Pera and packed some to bring back home. We reached our respective homes at around 9.45PM.
