Exploring mountainous countries is always a tricky thing, as you need either a 4-wheel drive car or enough patience and strength to pedal a bike. In the case of Bhutan, choosing the second option will make you sweat, but it is more favourable, as some places are accessible only by small vehicles.

Biking in Bhutan - Best Season

Biking in Bhutan can be done almost at any season, but winter cold and occasional rain may spoil your experience, so it is better to plan a trip between March and November. Although most of the roads are in decent condition, you should always keep an eye when pedalling on narrow roads near cliffs, where two-lane roads can barely fit in a single truck.

There are plenty of agencies that can organise your trip from A to Z, but you can always bring your own "steed." When developing a biking itinerary, do not forget to include spots like the remote Tang Valley, Chimi Lhakhang Monastery, and the magnificent cliffs and waterfalls of the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park.
