The only Buddhist Himalayan kingdom in existence, Bhutan is one of the happiest places in the world. With more than 20 peaks towering 7,000 meters over sea level, subtropical forests and alpine landscapes, this country is the go-to place for Adrenalin junkies, adventure seekers, mountaineers and those who wish to relax and spend some time in a quiet, tranquil region. The land of the Dragon, shrouded in mist and mysteries is on nearly everyone’s bucket list.
A trip on a bike through this wonderful and happy country where the GNP was renamed to GNH or Gross National Happiness can be nothing short of magical. Although Bhutan opened for tourism as late as 1974, the annual influx of tourists is rather low. A constitutional monarchy since 2008, Bhutan is a fiercely independent land. This is one of the few countries in the world that has never been colonized.
You will feel as if you’ve been transported back in time. Bhutan maintains its traditions and customs and that shows in the country’s architecture and prevalent dressing style of the Drukpas.
From the Tiger’s Nest monastery in Paro to the busy streets of Thimphu, this country is amazing, magical and as we told you earlier, happy!
Join us for a spellbinding journey on two wheels through the land of the dragon as we take you from breathtaking valleys to mountain hugging monasteries to alpine meadows that dot this land!
P.S.: Not comfy riding a bike? No problems! Hop on for a Jeep tour of this fascinating country!
