This stimulating multi-activity Bhutan holiday from Paro to Punakha is sure to give you a body and soul workout Bhutanese style. Combining trekking on the ancient and traditional “haute route” from Paro to Thimpu, cycling in Bhutan and whitewater rafting Bhutan style isn’t the usual way people journey through Bhutan. Of course we’ve not forgotten to include the Tigers Nest Hike. This is a varied way to experience the wonders of Bhutan, interesting but lots of fun too. For those who enjoy a bit of a challenge the climb up to the 3140m Dochu La on a mountain bike is certainly that. The 45km, 2000m freewheeling descent on two wheels makes it all worthwhile though. There’s breathtaking scenery from the word “go”, iconic cultural sites, a touch of the “wild side” of Bhutan on trek, as well as endless opportunities to meet the friendly Bhutanese people.
