Bhutan Mountain Bike Tour (#62 )

About this package

The kingdom of Bhutan is the famous for Mountain biking also. The route along Bhutan's west-east highway (approx. 600 km) is an exciting route with challenges of surmounting a new pass over 3000 meters everyday. The highways winding up and down with drops of thousand of feet keep one too high on adrenaline to feel the slightest pinch of monotony. We can also ride through the national highway, up hills, down hills, mountain passes, small towns and villages towards Paro, Wangdiphodranto, Gangtsey Gompa and Thimpu amid impressive ever changing panoramic vistas with the gorgeous mountain ranges, the river valleys, unpolluted landscape, intact nature and the living culture & traditions are the rewards of getting to Bhutan. It is all alive and intact here when it is lost in most parts of the world. Mountain bike is an instrument to connect humans to nature, to feel it, admire, learn to appreciate and respect it. So be a part of it and enjoy nature.
