Bhutan Tours: Best Places to See By Motorcycle

Bhutan is a magical country with a still unfolding story that’s 1276 years in the making. It’s also one of the most beautiful countries with gorgeous vistas and stunning mountain passes. There’s almost too much to see if you’re planning on taking a short holiday unless you have a mobile and speedy way of getting around.

Taking a motorbike on one of our Bhutan Tours is the ideal way to pack all of the beautiful nature and heritage sights into a fun and affordable holiday. Have a look at some of the best places in Bhutan you’ll be able to see on our motorbike tour.

Tashichho Dzong

Tashichho Dzong, or Fortress of Glorious Religion, is both a Buddhist monastery and a fortress in the capital city of Thimpu. This magnificent castle’s most recent restoration was finished in 1969, but the fortress itself dates back to around 1772 when a fire destroyed the original Tashichö Dzong (which was itself over 500 years old at that point).

The fortress serves as the seat of Bhatan’s government, housing the king’s residents and offices, as well as the offices of certain ministries of the Bhutanese government. This combined with its beautiful architecture makes it an important geopolitical location, cultural site, and tourist attraction.

Trongsa Dzong

The Trongsa Dzong is another fortress, this one situated high in the mountains in Bhutan’s center. What makes this one of the best places to visit in Bhutan on your motorcycle tour is the marvelous roads up the many valleys that take you to the fortress. You get to drink in some of the best views on the planet all while enjoying a sweet ride.

Tang Valley

Bhutan is also one of the countries that boast examples of nature that have been virtually untouched by human expansion, like the Tang Valley. This ancient highland valley is one of the least accessible valleys in all of Bhutan unless you’re on a motorbike.

Only a handful of people live in this part of the country, most of whom are smallholder farmers and spiritual practitioners. Because the valley is remote and sacred, a trip through the valley can feel like going back in time.

Tiger’s Nest

You’ll have the option to choose between exploring the Lower Paro Valley or hiking to the Tiger’s Nest monastery at the end of your Bhutan motorcycle tour. Either choice is a great choice, but we’ll focus on the Tiger’s Nest here as it is the most recognizable of all Bhutan attractions.

Built into the side of a mountain (around the Taktsang Senge Samdup cave), this monastery has an important religious and historical heritage. The breathtaking architecture and pristine view of the valley below combine to create an unrivaled experience.
