Our Tours in LabRat Run Bhutan
The Bhutan Rats
Dates: October 2020
For 2020, by invitation only.
LabRat Runs have quickly become a PaintedRoads tradition. A group of easygoing and adventurous regulars, The LabRats annually sate their appetite for adventure by joining the inaugural running of a PaintedRoads adventure tour. for 2020 we head for the Himalayas, and the little-visited Buddhist Shangri-La, Bhutan.
Bhutan is a special and unique Himalayan Kingdom where success is measured in Gross National Happiness, not Gross National Product. In order to keep tourism at a controlled level, a minimum fee per day is levied on all tourists. Not only does this famously make Bhutan one of the most costly nations in the region to visit, but it is also, quite genuinely, probably the happiest, most peaceful, and safest.
PaintedRoads cycling adventure through Bhutan offers a very special view of an already exclusive country. As we cycle through the Himalayas, enjoying some of Asia's most spectacular views and exhilarating cycling terrain we pass beautiful monasteries, wonderful wildlife - hunting is illegal, and meet fascinating people.
Bhutan really is the ride of a lifetime.
