Reviews

Amazing trip to Bhutan with Spiceroads that facilitated with its great staff. An excellent combination of cycling, visiting sites, eating local foods, meeting local people and learning about the Bhutanese culture.

It was a perfect way to experience the majestic Mountains, beautiful Bhutanese people & their serene spiritual culture. Touring on a bicycle is the perfect pace to take in all the sensory elements that the country has to offer, while at the same time challenging your body!
