About Motorcycle

Bhutan opened its doors to the outside world in the 1960s and since then modernization has been gradually stepping in. Although Bhutan has enhanced its economic and social development in all aspects, it has also remained true to preserving the country’s rich culture and tradition. Today, Bhutan is one of the most attractive tourist destinations because of our unique culture and tradition and the pristine natural environment.

Most adventure riders also seek out for the roads of Bhutan. The twists, the bends, the curves on all roads in Bhutan are incomparable to any other. What makes it so special? You will be riding your bike, literally at the edges while enjoying the vast diversity of forest, rivers and mountains. At every stop of your ride, it holds for you to see one of the many endangered species of birds, animals found in the virgin forest of Bhutan or a mystical fortress or temple that holds many legends. Your experience in Bhutan will definitely be thrilling and it is for certain that the more you ride in Bhutan, the more you will want to ride. Most of the motorable roads in Bhutan have very less traffic, which makes it even more adventurous for riders to enjoy the sharp narrow bends en route. Riding in Bhutan will give the riders an out of the box experience, with not only high winding motorable roads but a rich exposure to the country’s culture and tradition which are much observable.
