Mountain biking across Bhutan

On your mountain bike you embark on the adrenaline-fueled explorations of Bhutan’s inaccessible routes from West to East. The biking journey kick starts from Paro following a single paved road that meets up further with steep, narrow, rocky and muddy paths through several alpine passes, or extreme washboard caused by cattle or yak. Crossing by a total of seven undulating mountain passes, you make several ascents and descents stretching before you a real picture of Bhutanese Lifestyle. From Thimpu to the Indian border post at Samdrup Jongkhar, you get to experience Bhutan up close and personal on a mountain bike.

Highlights:

Sightseeing in Paro and Bumthang valley
Peddle through Thrumshing la (4050m)
