Great trip and photos, Hrishi! How did you go with getting a visa? Last time I looked into it they (Bhutan) wanted US$100 per day for one!! Maybe you got a better deal?

Here's a link to the Ride Report that MaddBrit started. The RR is sort of confusing because I started the trip with 3 other guys and 2 of them didn't continue so we met some guys from Austrailia that we continued our trip with so the report is sort of disconnected. I might try to start one this winter.

Thanks for adding that route map

Here you go. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=509804
