The South American continent offers a wealth of adventure riding treasures. We’ve been riding there since 1995, and by far the most popular region is the southern reaches of Chile and Argentina known as Patagonia.
Technically it is bound by the Atlantic Ocean to the East the Pacific to the West, sandwiching the Andean mountain range, a stunning system of fjords with temperate rainforests, glacial lakes, and barren windswept grasslands. It is this exact dynamic that offers you a thrilling motorcycle riding experience, unlike any other on the planet.

Bhutan Thunder Dragon Motorcycle Tour
The hidden magical Buddhist Kingdom of the Eastern Himalayas
This Bhutan motorcycle tour is for the adventurous traveler and can be acceptable for an equally spirited riding passenger. Roads are largely paved however expect sections to be unpaved in varying conditions of disrepair. For this reason, we classify the Thunder Dragon Tour as ADVENTURE+ This unique travel experience launches out of Delhi, India with a domestic flight (included) positioning the tour in East Bagdogra, where you enter Bhutan riding in the heights of the Eastern Himalayas, experiencing a special culture, largely removed from the modern world until around the 1970’s. The population is extremely welcoming however foreign visitation from the is limited and controlled in an effort to preserve their peaceful and unmolested Buddhist lifestyle. Things are changing in the kingdom; however, you will still find Bhutan one of the most fascinating little countries in the world.

Is Bhutan Safe?
It would be hard to imagine anywhere safer in the world. This tiny kingdom zealously wishes to retain its deeply rooted Buddhist culture and traditions. It is so important that they have developed a metric to determine what is called Gross National Happiness to measure the contentment of its population.
What are the roads like?
You will get a little of everything thrown at you. Rains tend to deteriorate surfaces and certain mountain passes seem to be eternally under some state of repair and maintenance. Traffic is not a big issue but you may encounter an elephant or two along with wandering pedestrians and automobile traffic.
What about the motorcycles?
We are thrilled with the Royal Enfield Himalaya 400 cc motorcycle. It is perfect for this part of the world. A Royal Enfield Bullet 500, that classic styled motorcycle with its British heritage, can also be made available on request.
Is this a good tour for couples?
Yes. We have had many over the years. The small bike may be a stretch for two large people. The support van easily accommodates any non riding participants or family members who you may wish to have join you. It is an experience that you will definitely want to share. Contact us for further consultation.
Do I need a visa?
Yes. We obtain that for you. This will not require you to send your passport anywhere but we will need a clean color scan of your passport along with other information to perform this process. This makes it even more urgent for you to book your tour early.
What about India?
Yes again, a multi-entry visa which you will have to apply for and send out your passport. We will walk you through the entire process.
Are there any health concerns?
No, not beyond our usual recommendations to get inoculations for hepatitis and to keep your tetanus current.
Is there a risk of altitude sickness?
You are riding in the shadows of the Himalayas and there are a few mountain passes that approach 10,000 feet however we do not spend the night at those higher altitudes. If you are sensitive to higher elevations we will provide you with further consultation and urge you to speak with your physician.
When is the best time to go to Bhutan?
We typically run our tours in the spring and fall. Global warming is having an impact, shifting rain seasons so we are adjusting accordingly.
We fly into Delhi, India. What can we expect?
From Delhi we stage the gathering of the group and then a domestic flight is secured( and included in the tour package) to West Bengal. Here the bikes are stationed for entry into Bhutan. When you arrive in Delhi you will be met by one of our representatives and transferred in private transportation to your hotel (also included). We suggest you come in a day or two early and consider an optional excursion to Agra to experience the wonder of the Taj Mahal and other highlights of India. We will facilitate that for you as well.
How big are the groups?
We cap our tours at 10 motorcycles. On this tour we have taken as few as five guests. Why not network with your friends and have them join you. We can, with advance planning, also arrange a custom private tour just for your group.
Are there any self guided tours available for Bhutan?
Now. Please. Early sign ups are essential in order that we can secure the best of high demand accommodations during this holiday period. Organize a group. Start your planning today.
