Bhutan Mountain Biking Tour
If you are doing Asia Biking Tour , Himalaya Mountain Biking Tour or book Bhutan Mountain biking Tour .It is getting popular amongst the Bhutanese and visitors alike. The rugged topography is less friendly for cycling, which makes biking on this terrain a popular sport amongst visitors. Biking in Bhutan is a different experience.
Biking is a very unique way of seeing and interacting with the country, people and the Bhutanese environment. The increasing number of off-road roads makes biking more adventurous and satisfying. Most biking trips go through well paved roads while others trail on to dirt roads and trails. The relatively light traffic and biking through serene and pristine environment gives an intimate experience.
The more adventurous have the option of making side excursions for more “off-the-road” ventures if preferred. The surface accommodates most types of frame styles: from MTB, Hybrid, and Road, depending on your cycling style and experience.
Biking trails mostly meander through small towns and villages and rural areas; it’s just you, your bike, the tour group and the agrarian and natural scenery. Biking in Bhutan allows you many opportunities for self reflection along with the absorbing, rich environment. There are also numerous opportunities for optional hikes with a bit of climbing thrown in. There are some challenging climbs with one in particular that is more than seven hours. You peddle the pads over two miles (3400 meters) above sea level. The effort made is equally rewarded with a view and an experience that is as rare as anything in this increasingly globalizing and monotonous world. Riders should have an adequate level of fitness and stamina and be experienced enough in the art of mountain biking. Tours are fully supported by a van following riders. The van allows riders the option to sit in and take a break.

A winter in Bhutan is characterized by clear blue skies, but you need your jackets with you.
