Bhutan Motor Biking and Cycling Tour
Bhutan is a very beautiful place for out door touring on Motor Bikes and Bicycles. The sky is clear, air is pure and clean and the trails and roads are winding, passing through wilderness and blissful nature all around. Bhutan Jewel Travel Operate such tours so that the adventurous and nature loving tourists can enjoy their time in Bhutan.
Motor Biking is truly an adventure in Bhutan, as Bhutan roads are narrow and meanders up and down sooner than you expect the next curve or bend. You will pass by many untouched villages and typical Bhutanese homes and will meet quite a few of the villagers doing their daily chores. On off road adventure, the state of the roads are unknown as it will change with the weather. Probably Bikers will also cross by abandoned village homes and all looks like some deserted cowboy movie set.
Motor Biking Tours:
This tour is more for the two wheeler adventurist who love and live adventure and on the face feel of raw thrill.
We at Bhutan Jewel Travel use only Royal Enfield Brand Bikes. All you need to do is just enjoy every ride through straight roads,winding roads,high passes,through villages,rural towns,and lonely roads ,all in one and in harmony with nature. I say Biking is an adventure as we are at the mercy of nature and that’s why its so thrilling when one sits to start riding on.
Bhutan has the most beautiful roads although a bit narrow. While riding you pass by and enjoy nature in all its forms, meet local people and you can stop wherever you please.
We will be there to guide you and show you the best of Bhutan.
Motor Biking Tours in Bhutan take the same and similar road as the vehicles and stay over night in designated places of night halts. The Biking Tours are similar to the Bhutan Cultural Tours,except that you will be riding a Bike instead of sitting in a car.
Then we have the Off Road day trips or you can camp at designated places for a night out gazing up at the stars.
CLOTHES: We advice Riders to wear layered clothes as the weather changes within short distances.
Bhutan Traffic Rules: In Bhutan, all vehicles and two wheelers have to ply on left hand side of the road. So get used to this rule as its most safe on bends where accidents can be avoided.
RIDE SAFE and ENJOY EVERY INCH OF THE ROAD WHEREVER YOUR BIKE TAKES YOU.
#Bicycling is another of the out door adventure touring in Bhutan. Cycle at your own pace and enjoy the wilderness,the forests that cover both sides of the road and biking trails.
Bicycle Touring in Bhutan is so untapped thus tourists will enjoy the trails and the wilderness.Cycling can be done on the main road too whereby you cycle instead of traveling on the bus or car and enjoy the freshness of cycling around.
There are special set routes for bicycling in Bhutan. Like I mentioned earlier,cycling is untapped so trails have been opened for cycling but you can venture into other areas if you are the dare devil type and want to explore and create your own route.
