Cycling in Bhutan
These days everyone in Bhutan is seen with a bicycle. Maybe it is a trend or a endeavor to stay healthy. Whatever the reason may be, Bhutan indeed provides the right recipe for an cyclist, with its very limited density of population, 70 percentt of the country under forest areas, fresh mountain air, and clear blue skies. One cannot ask for a better location to go cycling.
Biking in Bhutan is an immensely enriching experience, allowing one to feel the way of life in Bhutan at one’s own pace. Even the towns can be fun given the limited parking space; however the country sides are a gem. Areas around Paro, Thimphu and Punakha are highly recommendable because of its cycle friendly routes and beautiful landscape amidst local villages; the cheila free wheel biking in particular are very famous. As you book your tour in Bhutan, a biking activity may be included in your itinerary at an additional cost.
