Cycling

Bhutan’s rugged mountain features provide the best of both the worlds to on-road or off-road mountain biking as well. The sport has seen a heightened popularity among both visitors and Bhutanese alike.

There is a range of biking routes available – from smooth journeys on paved roads to challenging off-road dirt trails that wind through rough terrain. The sport offers a certain intimacy with the environment that is seldom experienced in vehicles. With better roads replacing the old and the increasing number of off-road roads, biking is now becoming a very unique and original way of seeing and interacting with the country, it’s people and of course the environment.

Most biking trips go through well paved roads while others trail on to dirt roads and trails. Traffic is still relatively very light, rendering the experience a very intimate one. The more adventurous have the option of making side excursions for more ‘off-the-road’ ventures. Bhutanese biking trails accommodate most types of frames: including MTB, Hybrid, and Road, depending on your cycling style and experience. Biking trails mostly meander through small towns and villages and rural areas; it’s just you, your bike, the tour group and the agrarian and natural scenery.

There are also numerous opportunities for optional hikes with a bit of climbing thrown in. There are some challenging climbs with one in particular that is more than seven hours. You pedal the pads for over two miles (3,400 meters) above sea level. Your effort is rewarded with a breathtaking view and an unforgettable experience. Riders should have an adequate level of fitness and stamina and be experienced enough in mountain biking. Tours are fully supported by a van following riders. The van allows riders to rest should they require it. Many of the biking trails lead through small villages and temples which can provide interesting and informative diversions should you wish to take a break.
