Sikkim & Bhutan On Motorbike

Unlike the Himalayas of Ladakh, Sikkim’s tracks are very peaceful and calming. The traffic is well behaved and even though the terrain is less dramatic, the views are well worth the effort. If you prefer pushing yourself, head to the north for some extreme action.
Bhutan is a country of rolling hills and towering crags certainly exudes charm. The mountains are magnificent, the forest are dense, the people are delightful, the air is pure, the architecture inspiring, the religion exciting and the art superb. Like timeless images from the past, the traveler encounters the full glory of this ancient land through its strategic fortresses known as Dzongs, numerous ancient temples, monasteries and stupas which dot the countryside, prayer flags which flutter along the high ridges, wild animals which abound in dense forests, foamy white waterfalls which are the ethereal showers, and the warm smile of its friendly people that enchants as you ride on further into the country.
