Enjoy a memorable week exploring the highlights of a mystical and undiscovered mountain kingdom on this Bhutan cycling tour. Set off on a bicycle adventure from the historic and sacred town of Paro through one of Asia’s most intriguing, isolated, and visually stunning destinations: The Kingdom of Bhutan.
Mountain biking is popular with Bhutanese and expats alike.
Cycle the winding roads and watch the snowy peaks rise above the faint gorges covered with lush green forests. Bhutan lends to the crazy cyclists, a contrasting terrain that adds on to the cycling thrill. The smooth roads soon change to rocky dirt trails. Cycling past Bhutan is extremely exhilarating as once you reach a new high; you are suddenly hit by nerve-wracking drops of thousand meters. The sudden shift in the typography is something worth experiencing.
