On Tuesday 12th July 2022, the we were named in TIME’s 50 extraordinary travel destinations around the world for 2022.

The annual list is formed of places offering new and exciting experiences, which have been nominated by Time’s international network of correspondents and contributors. We are delighted to be named alongside bucket-list destinations such as the Galapagos Islands and the Great Barrier Reef.

After a 60-year hiatus, the Trans Bhutan Trail is set to finally reopen. Since the 16th century, when the 250-mile trek was the only way to travel across Bhutan, the trail has served as a pilgrimage route for Buddhists, running from Haa in the west to Trashigang in the east. Now it has been reimagined as an outdoor adventure through the world’s first carbon-negative country.
The Royal Government of Bhutan, Tourism Council of Bhutan, and Bhutan Canada Foundation combined forces to oversee the restoration of 18 major bridges, 10,000 stairs, and hundreds of miles of pathways. Intrepid travelers can hike, bike, and camp through the lush meadows and dense forests of nine dzongkhags (districts), 28 gewogs (local governments), two municipalities, parts of Phrumsengla National Park, and more than 400 historic sites. The route is peppered with museums and ancient fortresses, like Jakar Dzong and the Fortress of the White Bird, perched on a ridge above the historic Bumthang Valley.” – TIME
