Bhutan Road Trip

Bhutan with tagline “Happiness is a Place” spells exactly for the same. With ‘Gross National Happiness’ preceding over the monetary considerations, it’s the land for merriment, blessedness, playfulness and JOY in a whole. Until 1962, Bhutan didn’t take notice of building roads in their country. It opened up to modern development very recently. To protect its traditions and culture, the kingdom prices itself a bit high leading to less of touristic invasion, which makes it super peaceful altogether.

The extremely rugged, slopping terrains, dense vegetation and mountainous landscape of Bhutan lends itself well to both on-road and off-road mountain biking. The straight roads hardly exist in such topography. For risk takers and bike freaks its heaven on earth. Away from the city hustle – bustle and the harassing traffic jams, this place marks as one of the two places in the world with no traffic signals after Pyongyang in North Korea. Imagine no honking, overtaking and not being stranded between other motors, isn’t that A-M-A-Z-ING?

Biking projects self reliance and fearlessness. What better it could get, thundering the Enfield through the dirt trails in the ‘Land of Thunder Dragon- Bhutan’. And its rightly said – ‘Travelling here is travelling back in time’. The flawless greenery of the orchards, fossil valleys, quaint and tiny villages is beauty to the eyes. Running through the town over a Royal Enfield is an ideal union of ‘Beauty’ and the ‘Beast’. The chimes in the monasteries, chanting by the monks and a constant breeze preserves the undying customs and culture of Bhutan.

The entire road trip is dotted with winding roads going thousands of feet up and down, keeping one interested, excited and on toes throughout the journey. The trip is structured in a way that one gets to enjoy the ethnicity and uniqueness of cities like Phuntsholing, Thimphu and Paro along the countryside and its people.
