“Bike through Beauty”

We are a group of 16 experienced Norwegian bikers that in May 2016 “bike through beauty” in Bhutan for 12 days: Paro – Thimphu – Punakha – Bumthang – Ura Valley – Trongsa – Gangtey, and finally conquering the Chelela pass of 4000 meters. We are thankful to Little Bhutan for excellent support and help.

But the tour was much more than biking – a journey through the unique culture and Buddhist mentality of positive thinking in Bhutan. Little Bhutan managed to show us not only the tourist highlights as Tigers Nest and the Dzongs, but also schools and hospitals of particular interest for us.

We strongly recommend Little Bhutan to other tourists and bikers that want to experience Bhutan at its best.
