Bhutan is no ordinary place. It is a Himalayan kingdom with a reputation for mystery and magic, where a traditional Buddhist culture carefully embraces global developments. The Motorcycle Tours heads into the little known areas of Sikkim and then into the Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan. Very few people have visited this kingdom. A magical motorbike adventure for sure! The road is narrow, little used and 90% tarmac, with rough sections on the high passes. This trip has some long days and several tough climbs. The climbs are usually not steep and the roads are generally narrow and almost traffic-free. Biking at altitudes between 600 metres and 3800 metres, we will notice a marked difference in temperatures – from very pleasant and warm to cold and frosty on the highest of the passes. This is a place whichhas so much to offer – serene and scenic landscapes, art, religion, culture, and of course, because it happens to be one of the few countries in the world that is still ruled by a King and a Queen.
