As seen in

The esteemed Smithsonian Magazine published a wonderful, indepth piece about the Trans Bhutan Trail featuring comments from Sam Blyth, founder of the Bhutan Canada Foundation, and a trustee of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History

“When I first went to Bhutan in the 1980s, I walked the country with some people who walked the trail as children,” Blyth says. “I’d always heard of this legendary trail and experience, because it had a big impact on very young children. So when the time came, it was really easy for me to see that this thing really could capture the imagination and would be both a physical experience and educational experience, and to many a spiritual experience"
