“I was in Bhutan for a vacation with my Bhutanese friends from college. I’m from Mizoram and currently studying at Sharda University. Since we all take the same course (Bachelors Degree in Dental Science) we visited Bhutan as an ‘after exams’ trip.
This picture was taken at Taktsang, Bhutan. Taktsang means “Tiger’s Nest.”
I loved vacationing with my friends – to see the place they’re from and to see their hometown through their eyes. The whole experience turned out to be a giant memorable trip but Taktsang Monastery stood out. It was beautiful to see the devotion with which so many people walk through such a steep mountain to pay their respect. The tiger’s nest cave was scary and different from anything I had ever done before. The climb was hard for me but it was such a treat to finally look upon a temple constructed on such a precarious cliff.
I liked almost all the food I ate there, although I had tasted many prior to the visit courtesy my friends who sometimes cook in our hostel.” ~ Shwayi, BDS student, Sharda University
