facehunter Pilgrims parade Taktsang Palphug Monastery aka Tiger's Nest is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and temple complex, located in the cliffside of the upper Paro Valley. It was first built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup cave where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days and 3 hours in the 8th century. He flew there from Tibet on the back of Yeshe Tsogyal, whom he transformed into a flying tigress for the purpose of the trip. 🐅 #Taktsang #TigersNest #Bhutan #DrukYul #MyBhutan @mybhutan #Himalaya #FacehunterBhutan 12h

facehunter Holly War. The Ging Tsholing Cham aka the dance of the sacred war between the Gods and the Demons.

The Tsholing, terrifying deities who are seen as protectors of the religion, purify the ground of evil influences.

The Ging chase away the Tsholing and proclaim victory for the religion by eating drums. With their drumstick, they hit people on the head to drive out impurities, and the public whistles to keep demons far away.

facehunter Who cares about TV when your country looks like this.

In 1999, the government lifted a ban on television and the Internet, making #Bhutan one of the last countries to introduce television.

facehunter Himalayan adventures.

After the most epic #offroading ride from Thimphu, we finally reached an abandoned iron
mining site above 4000m: #Chakula. The guys from
#Bhutan4x4adventures think I'm the very 1st chilip (foreigner in Buthanese) to access that spot! #Bhutan #DrukYul #MyButhan @mybhutan #FacehunterBhutan
