Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) flew on the back of a tigress to this rock outcrop to subdue a local demon. He meditated there for three months and then went on to bring Buddhism to Bhutan (officially, in Bumthang in 746.) Now chillips (foreigners) hike for hours (2+) to get here. Facts are a bit conflicting, but you have to climb around 2,000 feet, to 10,300 foot elevation. It was difficult, and I got alarmingly light headed at points, but well worth it. Although there are a gazillion pics of the place, the principal advertisement for Bhutan, here are some more.
(Dear readers, know I love you. This is taking freakin’ forever to post these few pics.)
You know me, I have many more photos: plants, details, etc, but it took almost two hours to get this post up, so I am stopping here. It would be nice to find a more efficient way, or a faster connection speed, or something. Perhaps I should stick to text, but I’ve noticed I’m a slow writer too. I guess this might explain the dearth of blog posts. Impulses in the right direction, but somewhat thwarted in execution. Find me on twitter while you wait. Short and sweet.
