C ycling/Mountain biking in Bhutan, whilst relatively new to the Kingdom, is steadily gaining popularity amongst both local Bhutanese and visitors alike. The country’s topography makes for steep hill climbs, high passes and lower valley riding that can be combined with rewarding cultural sightseeing.

Cycling is therefore a very unique way of experiencing and interacting with the Kingdom, its people, and its beautiful environment. Most biking trips will use a mix of well-paved roads through to dirt farm access roads and occasional trails, while the more adventurous have the option of some challenging climbs with one in particular that is more than seven hours in which you peddle the pads over two miles (3,400 meters) above sea level. You are more than equally rewarded with an extraordinary view and a rare experience.

Riders should have an adequate level of fitness and stamina and be experienced in the required skills of cycling/mountain biking. All our small group mountain biking tours are fully supported by a support vehicle with a mechanic which also allows the option to sit out a ride and take a break.

Bhutan’s roads & trails accommodate most types of frame styles: MTB, Hybrid, and Road, depending on your cycling style and experience. The traffic is still relatively light and the experience is very liberating and rewarding. This is the “Road Less Travelled.”

Biking trails mostly meander through small towns and villages in rural areas. It’s just you & your guide and companions, your bikes, and the natural scenery, allowing you many opportunities for self-reflection along with the absorbing, rich environment. Bring your own bike or we’ll provide one for you.

Opportunities for hikes and time to connect with the locals are also included in our mountain biking itineraries.
