Taktsang Palphug Monastery (also known as Tiger's Nest) in BhutanTshering Lhendrup DorjiKINGDOM OF BHUTAN

Bhutan is one of the most exclusive adventure tourist destinations in the world. A Himalayan Kingdom located between India and China, this is a country lost in time where a smile is most important currency. The landscape is dotted with Buddhist monasteries called "Dzongs," and the Bhutanese are well-educated and fluent in English. Their passion is conservation and preserving their pristine wilderness.

Tshering Lhendrup Dorji is the CEO of Bhutan Bike. His passion is biking and exploring. The Bhutanese have an expression -- "Jo Gey" -- which means "Let's go." If you are visiting Bhutan, we have mountain bikes and camping equipment, so that you can explore the Kingdom at your leisure. Come enjoy the warm friendly hospitality of the Bhutanese people.
