bhutan-03The route along Bhutan’s west-east highway (approx.700 kms) is an exciting route with challenges of battling a new pass over 3000 meters almost every day.

The highways wind up and down with drops of thousands of feet, keeping one high on adrenaline & not able to feel the slightest pinch of monotony.

Our Signature motorbike tour is specially designed for people who want to see the beauty of Bhutan at a relaxed pace over a period of ten (10) days.

This is the most well researched itinerary that we have chosen through our several trips to Bhutan over the last 2+ years, but we don’t mind changing or tweaking it a bit at your convenience if needed.
