SLIDESHOW: Two-Wheel Travel Through Bhutan

Photographer Paul Keister shares his awe-inspiring motorcycle journey through the serene Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan.

Bhutan Moto and Monks Buddhist monks contemplate the meaning of a dirt bike.

Cruising through striking pine-clad valleys atop KTM motorcycles, mainly on a single-lane road with a precipitous drop off, Paul Keister captures the transcendent beauty of Bhutan’s untarnished countryside.

With a limited number of tourists allowed to enter Bhutan each year, the world’s last surviving Himalayan Buddhist kingdom offers visitors the unrivaled opportunity to view a nation shielded from most Western influences.

These stunning images include the towns of Paro, Thimphu and the Punakha Valley with visits to remote villages, colorful dzongs, and tranquil stupas.
