[STC00288] The opening of the 250-mile Trans-Bhutan Trail, which has been closed for the past 60 years, will finally take place in 2022 after years of repair work.
The first trail, which dates back more than five hundred years, was used to connect various strongholds and religious places located throughout Bhutan.
The mountainous path, which was an essential component in the development of Bhutan’s national identity, wound its way through the kingdoms that are spread over the eastern Himalayas (which became a country in 1907).
During the 20th century, a network of roads was constructed to take its place, and as a result, large portions of the mountainous trail fell into ruin.
The reconstructed Trans-Bhutan Trail will now include around 10,000 stairs and 18 key bridges over its length of 250 km.
