Route 14 daagse fietsvakantie Cycling in Bhutan

Bicycles and Bhutan are a perfect fit. The tiny remote mystical Kingdom of Bhutan is probably the most culturally rich of all the Himalayan Kingdoms and is one of the most inaccessible. Tucked away at the eastern end of the mighty Himalaya, the Land of the Thunder Dragon is a wonderful place for a bike trip with mostly good paved roads, forests, glacial rivers, wonderful mountain scenery and cultural diversity. The whole country is very relaxed and is united by its love of the King and GNH (Gross National Happiness) is more important than GNP. This new trip takes us from Paro in the west to Bumthang in central Bhutan. We visit the remote Haa Valley and the capital, Thimpu. Crossing several passes over 3000m, we get wonderful views of the Himalaya. A side trip to the beautiful Gangtay Valley, Punakha Dzong are added highlights as is a visit to one of the masked dance festivals. There are plenty of long mountain climbs and exhilarating descents so a good level of cycling fitness is required.
