Unknown Cycling Bhutan

Across Bhutan by Bike

Epic Bhutan cycling adventure- West to East Traverse- Taktsang Monastery - Challenging Climbs- Blistering Descents

This is a very challenging Bhutan cycling holiday as you traverse Bhutan from West to East across several high mountain passes on the only road that crosses this small Himalayan country. But for those that love their cycling tough, this is a truly rewarding epic journey and needless to say a wonderful way of experiencing Bhutan. The “bare facts” of this trip speak for themselves and will either entice or have you running for cover. Over 7 days of cycling you’ll cover 620 km, involving grand totals of 11,600m of ascent, but a mouth-watering 12,500m of descent. It’s the equivalent of climbing Everest on a mountain bike and then some more….a fair bit more To add to the challenge at the altitudes this ride attains it can get very cold, particularly on the mountain passes. Cycling beyond Bumthang you enter a more remote, but beautiful part of Bhutan where very few tourists bother to venture, meaning that after a few nights in comfortable hotels, one night must be spent camping and two nights in basic lodges, “the best there is”. For those that dare there is quite possibly the best afternoon’s downhill road ride in the world to enjoy, 3200m….yes, that’s not a misprint….3200m of downhill cycling in one go. If you love cycling then this may be the best 5 hours you’ve ever had on a bike. Vehicle support is provided and there may be times when it will be necessary to utilise it on some of the longer cycling days if progress is slow, or if you’re just plain old pooped! For those that complete this Bhutan cycling holiday, you can be sure that you’ve just ridden one of the toughest weeks of cycling going. Of course you can’t come to Bhutan without doing the Tigers Nest hike, so that’s included too. Are you up for the Cycle Bhutan challenge?
