Today (November 23, 2020): Top 10 most epic day hikes in the world

The most rewarding travel experiences are often done on foot. Our planet has a vast array of hiking trails to explore, some of them crisscrossing breathtaking scenery, awe-inspiring culture, or protected wildlife habitats. Here’s my roundup of my 10 favorite day hikes in the world, which all require a sturdy pair of walking boots, a fit condition and a good amount of preparation.

10. TIGER’S NEST, BHUTAN

Taktsang Lhakhang – which translates to “Tiger’s Nest” – is Bhutan’s most iconic landmark, clinging impossibly to a sheer cliff face 900 m (2955 ft) above the valley floor. The temple is cloaked in myth, illustrating the sacred tales of Guru Padmasambhava, the source of Buddhism in Bhutan. Legend has it that the Guru flew from Tibet on the back of a mystical tigress and landed on the steep cliff to meditate in a cave. In the late 17th century, the monastery was constructed around the cave by Gyalse Tenzin Rabgye, who was universally believed to be the reincarnation of the Guru. The complex is open to visitors and can be reached by a four hour scenic hike through a beautiful, shady pine forest.
