We visited the temple where the 2nd Buddha meditated in the cave called Kurgay which means body imprint. He is also know as Guru Rinpochey which means precious master. He was here in Bhutan in the 8th century and is actually who bought buddhism to Bhutan. The temple was amazing built into the cave.

However, Yesterday we climbed two hours what felt like straight up rocks and narrow paths to Shugdra the cliff, where he also meditate in a cave. This one was quite a climb to get to and very small.
When we started out it looked like we were about to enter an Indiana Jones movie.
