We have developed a new adventure & community tourism product as a part of our holding enterprise, Bhutan Impact Travels. The event is an international enduro biking event, scheduled for the first Saturday of every December, with the inaugural year being 2020 at Limbukha, Punakha.

Bhutan Impact Travels designs and leads customized journeys that offer visitors deeper, more meaningful immersion experiences into the Kingdom of Bhutan’s rich culture, pristine environment and vibrant community.

100% of profits go directly to the Tarayana Foundation, a philanthropic organisation that seeks to build a happy and prosperous Bhutan by helping vulnerable and disadvantaged communities to help themselves. Our conservation-minded itineraries take great care to interact responsibly with the Kingdom; this means sensitivity to the pristine environment, the indigenous culture and the well being of local people.

Our itineraries emphasise community based tourism, natural beauty, indigenous traditions, and adventure sports.
