There are many destinations in Himalayan ranges but none is as quiet and peaceful as Bhutan. This makes Bhutan the ultimate destination for all kinds of nature lovers but most of all to bikers who are photographers or wildlife enthusiasts. In only 38400 sq km with more than 90% land under green zone Bhutan has stunning biodiverity for such a small area. It has about 770 species of birds, 5400 plant species, and approx 120 species mammals including rare animals like Indian Rhino, Elephant, Snow leopard, clouded leopard, golden cat, Tiger etc. This trip gives you chance to see, feel and experience the peaceful life of Drukpas – The people of dragons... There are many old monasteries in this country and they take you to the completely other age as if the time is frozen. Some things which are beyond words... one can pesonify this feeling after being in Bhutan Bhutan is not a major tourist centre, moreover Bhutan does not promote heavy tourism which keeps the country clean and pollution free for real nature lovers. On this bike trek we will be coming across thousands of waterfall, extremely scenic valleys, and small but beautiful villages with happy peasants.
