Bhutan is enormously rich in bird diversity. Of the 675 species recorded, 78% are resident and breeding, 7% are passage migrant, 8% are winter visitor, 6% are uncertain and 1% fall in the data deficient category; 27% show elevational migrations.  The Royal Manas Park in the southern belt has recently been opened where there is a possibility to see many species of birds and wild animals. 


Mountain-biking in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is altogether a new level of experience, peddling high up close with the nature. The gorgeous mountain ranges, the river valleys, unpolluted landscape, intact nature and the living culture and tradition are the rewards of getting around in Bhutan. It is all alive and intact here when it is lost in most parts of the world. Mountain biking is an instrument to connect human to nature, to feel it, admire, learn to appreciate and respect it. So be a part of it and enjoy the journey on mountain bikes amongst the nature breathing the clean and fresh mountain air.  If the guest interested in mountain biking race, the guest can take part in the Tour of the Dragon which is an annual event in September. The race starts from Bumthang, 2610 meters at 2 a.m. and ends in Thimphu covering 268 km across four high passes Kiki la at 2870, Yotongla at 3434 meters, Pele La at 3430 meters and Dochula at 3150 meters.  This race is certainly challenging for many mountain cyclist and this year 2016 there were a total of 47 participants of which 20 were international riders.


The clean and clear rivers of Bhutan are one of the Kingdom’s best kept open secrets. Fed by the Eastern Himalayas, the six rivers (Wang Chhu, Sunkosh, Puna Tsang Chhu, Mangde Chhu, Kuri Chhu and Dangme Chhu and their tributaries) have been scouted for kayaking and river rafting. These rivers cut through high valleys and low plains to meet up with the Brahmaputra River in India.


Besides doing the cultural tour in Bhutan, we also have many nature walks in different valleys in Bhutan. The day walks or hikes will generally take about an hour and half to three hours.  Some of the  hikes can be combined with your cultural tour in Bhutan.
