    Post Bhutan Motorcycle Trip

    Recently did my motorcycle trip to Bhutan, I am posting my travel outlines and some pictures from the trip if someone finds it useful.

    Day 1: Reached Jaygaon from Kolkata and stayed at Jaygaon. This is about 800km ride and the most I have done till date in one single day. 800 km in this congested route in one day is indeed something to be happy about.

    Day 2: Immigration process and motorcycle permit approvals took the first half of the day (might take the whole day if you are late in the queue). Roamed Phuentsholing city in evening. It is a nice and small town that sleeps at 8P.M.

    Day 3: Went to Thimphu from Phuentsholing. Nice road, but cold and foggy at some places. You will find beautiful landscapes as you climb.

    Day 4: Applied for permission to stay in Punakha. This has to be done in Immigration office of Thimphu. Visited Memorial Chorten, Royal Textile Academy of Bhutan, Folk Heritage Museum, Tashichho Dzong , Bhutan Takin Preserve, Clock Tower Square and Hogdzin Lam. Thimphu is one of the best city you will find.

    Day 5: Visited Buddha Dordenma. Great Buddha Dordenma is a gigantic Shakyamuni Buddha statue in the mountains of Bhutan celebrating the 60th anniversary of fourth king Jigme Singye Wangchuck. You will love this place. A must visit in Bhutan.
    After that we rode to Punakha, a city with beautiful landscapes via Dochula Pass. The Dochula Pass is a mountain pass in the snow covered Himalayas within Bhutan on the road from Thimpu to Punakha where 108 memorial chortens or stupas known as "Druk Wangyal Chortens" have been built by Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk, the eldest Queen Mother. Visited Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Lhakhang Nunnery temple on the same day after we reached Punakha.

    Day 6: Visited Chimi Lhakhang temple, Punakha Suspension Bridge and Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Temple. Reached Paro, the most sophisticated city of Bhutan in the evening.

    Day 7: Took a trip to the Chele La Pass, the highest pass of Bhutan. Rode upto the Haa valley, took some snaps and came back to Paro. Took a visit to the National Museum of Bhutan.

    Day 8: Took up the famous Tiger’s Nest Trek. This will take a full day; keep no other plan on this day.

    Day 9: Started to ride back to Kolkata. Do not forget to submit all your permission documents to Rinchending immigration check-post. Also, a full tank top up is mandatory at Phuentsholing, Petrol is 15 INR cheaper than India.

    Day 10: Reached Kolkata.

    Awesome. Really happy to see someone having completed it on the SZR. I have completed Leh and it was a great experience.

    There are no short-cuts to any place worth going. So ride safe when you are treading uncharted roads.

    Same here, The SZ-R was my first bike (had the exact same color) and was a brilliant bike at the price point when I got it.
    Great to see your experience through pictures. Keep riding.
