Long isolated from the rest of the world, the Himalayan nation of Bhutan still maintains an aura of mystery. Bicycling in Bhutan rewards you with stunning views and pristine nature on good paved roads with little traffic. We start cycling from Thimpu after visiting Paro and head east to Punakha, stopping to visit dzongs (fortresses), monasteries, and temples, while absorbing the Buddhist culture.
This introductory tour to the Land of the Thunder Dragon starts with a tour of Paro and a ride around the capital Thimpu. The most challenging leg is a climb to the top of Dochula Pass, down from which you’ll wonder at the scenery changes as you enter Punakha Valley. After a day exploring the lush flora and fauna around Tashithang, Punakha Dzong will amaze you with its construction.
Ending with a special visit to the fabled Tiger's Nest Monastery, you will go home enlightened by the fascinating landscapes, peoples, and cultures of Bhutan. The headiness won’t be from exertion at high altitude, it will be from the once in a lifetime experience!
