New Mountain Biking Adventure on the Greatest Trail in the World

New Mountain Biking Adventure on the Greatest Trail in the World

Following years of extensive restoration, the Trans Bhutan Trail will be opened by His Majesty, The King of Bhutan, in the ancient and sacred city of Trongsa. Travelers will now be able to see some of the remotest parts of this little-visited country, deep in the Eastern Himalayas – and, importantly, it will also enable the children of Bhutan to walk in the footsteps of their revered ancestors. The Trail, with origins that go back at least 500 years, will offer walkers and mountain bikers the opportunity to explore Bhutan’s rich culture and heritage and to see the country in an authentic and sustainable way. The Trail presents a rich experience for birdwatchers and botanists, photographers, rafters and runners, as well as for those seeking a spiritual, wellness, or religious journey.

Visit some of Bhutan’s most important spiritual and historical landmarks on this 105.5km (65 mile) cycle and immerse yourself in Bhutan’s unique traditional culture in the communities which flank the trail.  Take in Bhutan’s unique capital, Thimphu, the charming town of Punakha, and the royal cities of Trongsa and Bumthang, before rounding off with a rewarding hike up to Tiger’s Nest Monastery, the Kingdom’s most famous and revered religious building which is precariously perched on a cliff face 900 meters (2,950 feet) above the Paro Valley floor.
