Silver Dragon Adventures introduces a new excursion concept to introduce our visitors to experience Bhutan’s traditional customs and traditions in a Himalayan setting.
Touring in Motorcycle is the best way to discover Bhutan, a very scenic mountainous terrain. Bhutanese locals and visitors are taking to this new sports tourism as it gives an authentic experience by riding all the way from West to East highway in a Himalayan setting. As much as riders are expected to be adequately fit, our tour guides and van drivers are perfectly equipped with survival and safety skills required to tread these routes from West to East on tour of the Thundering Dragon.
The Trips takes the visitors through all regions of Bhutan. The itinerary will take you motorcycling in the mountains or cross-country drive till the eastern corner of the country.
Apart from motorcycle tour we can also blend your vacation with one of the country’s many special festivals called Tsechu. The Tsechu, exposes the visitor with three to four days of colorful mask dances which have religious significance and traditional dancing, fun-filled and sometimes vulgar entertainment by masked Atsara.
