Historic Trans-Bhutan Trail reopens after 60 years – BBC News

Once the lifeline of Bhutan, the 403km Trans-Bhutan Trail connected the affluent western districts of Haa to the remote far eastern Trashigang.

The trail dates back to the 16th Century, and was used by monarchs, traders, pilgrims and messengers for hundreds of years, but fell into disuse soon after Bhutan developed its highway in the 1960s.

Now, more than 60 years later, the historic trail has reopened.
