Trans Bhutan Trail to reopen after 60 years


In March 2022, following two years of extensive restoratio­n, the Kingdom of Bhutan will reopen the historic and sacred Trans Bhutan Trail for the first time in 60 years.

The trail will be officially inaugurate­d by His Majesty the King of Bhutan, whose vision it was to restore the ancient route for tourism, adventure and connection. From April 2022, internatio­nal tourists will be able to walk the trail for the first time, simultaneo­usly providing economic benefits to rural communitie­s along the way.

G Adventures, has been selected by the Bhutan Canada Foundation, the non-profit that led the restoratio­n of the trail, as the first group adventure operator when the trail launches to the public.

Two new Active trekking itinerarie­s are now available to book with G Adventures, an 11-day Camp the Trans Bhutan Trail trip, which features camping and homestays, and a 12-day Highlights of the Trans Bhutan Trail itinerary with accommodat­ion in homestays, locally owned guest houses and hotels. transbhuta­ntrail.com
