Bhutan: Custom Hiking and Biking Itinerary
This active biking and hiking tour is custom-designed to take advantage of the best day hikes and gravel biking routes from Western to Central Bhutan. We explore off-the-beaten path trails while staying in local homes and at Bhutanese-run lodges along the way. Our excursions will bring us to remote monasteries and cultural sites of significance, where we will have the opportunity to experience daily Bhutanese life and culture. We gain unique insights into the Bhutanese way of life through the eyes of our expert local guides and our hosts along the way. This is truly a trip of a lifetime for those who've always dreamed of visiting the Himalaya and experiencing traditional cultures and hospitality.
