Trans Bhutan Trail

Connecting Bhutan: Past, Present
and Future

TIME Worlds Greatest Places

The Trans Bhutan Trail has been restored

For hundreds of years, it was used by pilgrims, messengers, armies and traders. Until the 1960s, it was the only way to travel and communicate with others across the country. Now, it has found a new life for an age of adventure and connection.

We are a game-changing, not-for-profit sustainable tourism initiative, showcasing a unique piece of Bhutan’s cultural heritage for the benefit of its people. With our range of itineraries, we invite you to discover the Trans Bhutan Trail for yourself.

Follow the Bhutanese way

With the wisdom and vision of His Majesty, The King, the restoration of the Trail was led by the Bhutan Canada Foundation with the support of the Tourism Council of Bhutan and countless individuals across the country including government officials, De-suups, and volunteers. Not only has the Trail allowed the Bhutanese to again walk in the footsteps of their ancestors to rediscover generations’ worth of stories and history, it also highlights the Kingdom’s core principles concerning the environment and sustainable development.
