BHUTAN ON WHEELS

Bhutan on Wheels

Total Duration: 7 Days - 6 Nights of Bhutan Mountain Biking Tour.     Biking Days : 1 Day.

This trip is a combination of cultural tour mixed with mountain biking along the biking trails of Khuruthang – Samdingkha- Punakha trail.

Although the proposed biking journey is over 17 km, the new trail construction is slightly over 7 km. The proposed journey will take off at Khuruthang and stay along the feeder road until the footpath suspension bridge at Samdingkha.

From Samdingkha the new trail mostly follows along the footpath at an average gradient of 10% until Punakha Dzong where the trail connects to the road. The terrain topography of the new trail is generally steep exceeding 100% in some stretches. However, the trail is an up-gradation of the footpath.

After reaching Punakha Dzong, you keep following the asphalt road along the Mo Chhu till Khuruthang town, a place to stretch the arms and spend a night at the cozy hotels.
