Bhutan Backpacking

Siliguri - Thimphu – Punakha – Paro – Siliguri

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 Tour heads into the little-known areas of West Bengal and then into the Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan. Very few people have visited this kingdom. A magical motorbike adventure for sure. When you ride over Bhutan, you will become one of the few who have experienced the charm and magic of one of the worlds`s most enigmatic countries – the “Last Shangri La”

This is a place which has 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.
