The much awaited country’s first community based eco-tourism trail, the Nabji-Korphu trail in Trongsa was opened on November 20.
The trail is expected to attract more tourists to Langthel and Korphu gewogs of Trongsa District. Most villagers are optimistic that rendering services
to tourists would fetch them additional income. Locals provide campsites, horses/mules for the tourists and even guides.This new route will also help ease the seasonality problem, as they are best suited for trekking between November and April, the lean tourist season. The trail was an attraction for both tourists and Bhutanese people alike to visit historical places, remote villages and witness the culture and luxuriate in the area’s unblemished natural environment.
The trail was developed in September this year, with funds from the Small Grant Program under the Tourism Development Fund- Reports Kuensel
