About this Tour:
Mountain biking in Bhutan, whilst relatively new to the Kingdom, is steadily gaining popularity amongst both local Bhutanese and visitors alike. The country’s topography makes for steep hill climbs, high passes and lower valley riding that can be combined with rewarding cultural sightseeing. Mt.biking is therefore a very unique way of experiencing and interacting with the Kingdom, its people and its beautiful environment. Most biking trips will use a mix of well paved roads through to dirt farm access roads and occasional trails, while the more adventurous have the option of some challenging climbs with one in particular that is more than seven hours in which you peddle the pads over two miles (3,400 meters) above sea level. You are more than equally rewarded with an extraordinary view and a rare experience.
Bhutan’s roads & trails accommodate most types of frame styles: from MTB, Hybrid, and Road, depending on your cycling style and experience. The traffic is still relatively light and the experience very liberating and rewarding and also less traffic in the roads of Pristine Kingdom of Happiness. Bring your own bike or we will provide one for you.
NOTE: Opportunities for hikes and time to connect with locals are also included into our Mountain Biking Itineraries..
