Cycling Adventure in Bhutan, the land of the thunder dragon

cycling

Cycling Adventure in Bhutan! Yes. You read it right! This 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.
