Bhutan Mountain Biking
Bhutan shares with Nepal, the world's greatest concentration of mountains and living heritage of Buddhism. The 75 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Paro can truly be described as a flight into fantasy. During the flight, a first hand close-up view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga and other famous peaks become reality. Bi-weekly flights between these two Kingdoms have made travel easier for the travellers to the long isolated Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan.
Straining every muscle to gain the high mountain pass or sailing downhill with the wind in your face, one moment along the twists and turns of a deep ravine along narrow mountain trails and the next with the vista of the majestic Himalayan ranges stretching to the horizons before you, bicycling in Bhutan is a reminder of the ups and downs of life itself. The thrill of bicycling in the panoramic terrain of Bhutan is an adventure that beckons to every cyclist looking for something out of the ordinary. All along the route the interruption by picturesque and almost medieval, villages and towns rich in cultural spots make a welcome diversion.
Depending on the choice of route, one can traverse long and winding roads passing through low lying foothills, the higher river valleys and the high Himalayas, the three zones that comprise the geographical variations of the country. The drama of magnificent scenes and sights unfolding with every turn of the wheel is something to fulfill a cyclist's dream.
