    Default Bhutan bike ride - Is a first aid car mandated by Bhutan government?

    Recently it was reported that some bikers wishing to travel through Bhutan on the bike have been refused permits to ride. A popular vlogger Toll Free Traveller even has a vlog on the experience.

    A bunch of us are planning a Bhutan ride and we made some enquiries about this and one of the travel agencies sent us this message:

    For your kind information, it is Bhutan tourism policy, bikers have to take back up car and guide, the reason behind that it is all for safety,because Bhutan mountain terrain Country, few accident cases had been reported before, immediate help must be on the spot by first aid knowledge guides

    This could explain people being turned away. However, if it was official tourism policy, why were people not informed at Phuentsoling that if they fulfil this car + first aid guide criteria, they can get permits?


    Checking if this is mere spiel by the operator or others have also got the same information.
