Discover the mysterious country of Bhutan by bike and take away memories of your week-long holiday that will last a lifetime. Landlocked and until recently hidden from the world, Bhutan now welcomes visitors who want to enjoy spectacular Himalayan vistas, clear air and colorful Buddhist temples in the land that invented Gross National Happiness. Bhutan limits its visitors in order to preserve its ancient culture, making it an authentic and ideal destination to explore!
This 7-day bike tour provides the easier and more manageable side of cycling in the Himalayas. There is one 16km pass to climb and one very long and thrilling descent to enjoy, as well as some flatter rides to even things out. As with every multi-day Grasshopper bike tour, our support vehicle is on hand at all times in case you need a lift uphill. Between rides we'll enjoy the sights, cuisine and cultural attractions this enchanting country has to offer.
If you are looking to combine this bike tour with a trek or other travel plans in Bhutan, let us know and we can help with onward arrangements and bookings.
167 Km riding. 90% of the roads are sealed (albeit with plenty of potholes!) but all the riding takes place at altitudes from 1300m to 3050m, so you will need to be prepared for all uphill or downhill riding. Bhutan is a sparsely populated country so traffic is light.
Make it private: Bhutan trips can be run as private tours for two or more people at a 20% surcharge.
Explore the old town of Paro, known for its many sacred sites and idyllic surroundings.
Conquer the Dochula Pass by bike with stunning mountain views as your reward before you ride down to the ‘Fertility Temple’.
Cycle across a suspension footbridge above the Pho River before exploring ancient dzongs (fortresses).
Trek to the sacred Tiger’s Nest Monastery set on a cliff for views out to the mist-covered mountains and thick forests.

WHAT MAKES US STAND OUT
Since Bhutan was closed to visitors for so long, and now limits tourism, it is an intriguing destination for a tour. We have used our knowledge and experience in order to show off the very best of this fascinating country to our guests as they cycle through spectacular scenery, visit dzongs and temples, and stay in comfortable accommodations. Bhutan is not a country you can easily visit on your own, so let us take care of the details and you enjoy the cycling exploration!
