Amankora will host a special ten-night cycling expedition between its five lodges, capped with Bhutan’s Tour of the Dragon race on 6 September. Considered one of the most challenging cycling races in the world, the Tour of the Dragon is a one-day mountain bike race that will take participants 268 kilometres from Central Bhutan to Western Bhutan, with elevations of 1,200 – 3,340 metres across four mountain passes.
Nestled high in the Himalayas, Bhutan’s dramatic landscape ranges from snow-capped peaks and deeply forested slopes to raging, boulder-strewn rivers, making the Kingdom one of the world’s most beautiful natural environments. This ten-night adventure will take participants into the heart of the Kingdom, offering cycling tours and sightseeing between Amankora’s five lodges.
