Land of the Thunder Dragon

"Nothing could be more striking than the pristine, haunting beauty of the landscape of Bhutan, or the atmosphere of peace and sacredness, which pervades the land from end to end. Bhutan is a place blessed with an almost magical power to transform the mind, as if being transported into a pure realm." —Sogyal Rinpoche

Anyone who has traveled to Bhutan can tell how untouched and remarkable the place is. Bhutan remains a mysterious magical place to visit, unique and timeless. The high mountain splendor and thin air completes the other world effect.

Our private-only cycling and trekking tour of the Kingdom of Bhutan encompasses popular highlights and lesser known ones, along with unique activities, including emphasis on customs, arts, cuisine, and personal encounters and other off-the-bike activities. Travel dates may correspond with a traditional Bhutanese festival, always a highlight of travel in the country, that can be attended during the trip (Fall is high festival season).

The Kingdom of Druk Yul, known in the west as Bhutan is a tiny nation located in the Himalayan Mountains and one that remains the least-touched by western civilization. The country was only opened up to tourism a little over 30 years ago and its previous isolation and low amount of tourists has meant that its culture and traditions have thrived without external influences.

Our route travels by bike and van through the cultural, historical and scenic highlights of the country, with a strong emphasis on personal encounters.

When to go? April and May are pleasant, as well as September through early November. September and October also offer the colorful religious festivals or Tshechus.

Have more time? Pre-tour consider adding our Myanmar bicycle tour. Post-tour options include continued high-mountain exploration of Kathmandu in the heart of the Himalayas. From Kathmandu, Delhi is not far off and one can re-immerse into city life by exploring the treasures of the magnificent, beguiling capital.
