Bucket Record Travel: The Highest 50 Places On The Earth
Accommodations embrace guesthouses, residence stays, luxury motels and well-appointed campsites on every of the trail’s 28 sections. Proceeds from trips booked with Trans Bhutan Trail, the nonprofit that led the restoration, go towards trail maintenance, educational applications, information training and other community causes. At the same time, the 250-mile Trans Bhutan Trail, a path used for centuries as a pilgrimage and communications route, reopened after a three-year restoration that mended suspension bridges, stone stairs and long-overgrown temples. The trail stretches east to west across nearly the entire country, passing through cities, villages, farmlands and wilderness. Depending on the route and time of year, trekkers might spy the snowcapped Himalayas, go to cliff-top fortresses, scale sacred mountain passes or cross via blooming rhododendron forests. Travel’s rebound has revealed the depth of our drive to discover the world.
