Bhutan, the secret Shangri La or ”the country with the peaceful thunder dragon”, is one the best kept secrets among travel destinations today.
The few people who have seen this mysterious kingdom have found a rich, antique Buddhist culture in an amazing landscape. We will drive across the country, from west to east. We will arrive in cities where there are no tourists, visit tiny countrysides up in the mountains, say hi to school children and monks and see farmers who work in the green landscape. You can find all of this in the country that is so beautiful placed in the Himalayas.
Not a lot of europeans have visited the beautiful and very special country since it was more or less closed until the 60’s.
To experience this on a KTM 640 is a dream! Curvy roads up to high attitude. Amazing views of snowy tops of Himalaya. We drive through forests that are filled with rhododendron and out on pasture land, along crystal clear rivers where we also go for a swim. This trip is a mix between beautiful asphalt roads and rough off-road paths.
This is a trip you will never forget! Join us!
