10 Days

Across Bhutan Cycling

Bhutan government’s strong policy of “High Value, Low Impact” makes it the most exclusive travel destination in the world. It enjoys a reputation for authenticity, remoteness, and a well-protected cultural heritage and natural environment. Bhutan has a strong policy on the conservation of the environment, promotion of cultural heritage, and safeguarding the sovereign status of the Nation. Bhutan is rated a Role Model as it has communicated its goal of remaining carbon neutral in the future Thus promoting itself as a high-end tourist destination.

Although Bhutan is a small country, it has extremely varied climates and seasons (four seasons- Spring, autumn, winter & summer) with altitudes ranging from 97 m to 7570 m. It has thus rich and diverse flora and fauna. With a pristine environment, more than 72% of the Bhutanese Landscape is under forest cover, because of which Bhutan was considered to be one of the Top 10 Global Hot Spots. The Bhutanese traditional reverence for nature has protected its environment and rich cultural heritage – still richly intact. Rich flora and fauna are yet to be explored. While other countries are losing their own culture and tradition, it is thriving in Bhutan, and many tourists around the world desire to visit Bhutan. It is the last surviving Mahayana Buddhist state in the world.
