Overview
This adventurous mountain biking trip takes you to the trails along snow capped mountains, rolling hills and midst beautiful cultural areas of Bhutan, a small Himalayan country in south Asia.
What to Expect
Bhutan, a small nation in south Asia that boasts for its nickname ‘the last Shangri-la’ is as adventurous for cycling experiences as it is for viewing its impeccable mountainous beauty.

Himalayas, rich culture, natural beauty, unique life styles of people: These are the ways this Himalayan kingdom is. Bhutan still is too little talked-about and shrouded in mystery, thus making this land a very less explored one, especially on a bicycle.

If you have ever dreamed of a pleasant ride through the lush green forests, over the rolling hills, along creeks and pristine villages and ancient monasteries, Bhutan, also known as ‘the Land of the Thunder Dragon’ is the place to be in. Ever since the government opened the country for tourists, mountain biking has slowly gained pace. Biking in Bhutan is a very rejuvenating experience.

Snow-capped mountains, emerald green landscapes, fascinating wildlife and gentle people all await you. Go experience Bhutan! It could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for you to collect reminiscing moments cycling around the exotic locations of Thimpu, Punakha, Paro and lot more! You will be greatly amazed by all your cycling experiences…
