Tour on Low Carbon Wheels (Mountain Biking Tour)
10 Nights/ 11 days
Bicycles and Bhutan are a perfect fit. A combination of easy mountain trails and charming paved roads, allow visitors to experience this beautiful country from the saddle. We use Trek 2300 mountain bikes to cover areas of interest in Western Bhutan including Taktsang Monastery, Paro, the Haa Valley, Thimphu, Dochula Pass, and Punakha. The tour is set up to accommodate a range of participants, from those who see a 35km uphill as an opportunity not to be missed, to those who wouldn’t skip the 40km downhill or the sag wagon to get them to the top! You don’t have to be a part of the Downhill Bikers Club, but if you are, our sweep vehicle is at your service. It is a fun trip that is full of pleasant hikes and short days on two wheels or for those who prefer to roll out the miles, long rides of 70 – 110 km, with memorable stops in rural Bhutanese towns. In other words, this trip is designed for families and for groups with different biking goals. The group spends each night together at a variety of accommodation from inns in rural villages to hotels in Bhutan’s biggest city, Thimphu. Small paved roads, moderate trails, and dirt roads await riders of all abilities on this amazing tour of western Bhutan. Join us for this fantastic ride. Please note organizing private trips for clubs can be arranged.
