Tech on the Trail

The Trans Bhutan Trail is leading the way with the exciting technological developments along the route. Whilst Bhutan, home to one of the world’s best-preserved traditional cultures, might be an unlikely place to find cutting-edge technology projects, there is in fact a huge interest, led by His Majesty the King himself, in emerging technology within Bhutan.

Giving effect to His Majesty’s vision, Trans Bhutan Trail strives to connect Bhutan’s Past, Present and Future by integrating new technologies along this ancient path, bringing centuries worth of history and legend to life through exciting modern media.

 Below are some examples of the technology which we have integrated into the Trans Bhutan Trail.


Perhaps the most exciting of our technological developments is our collection of Trans Bhutan Trail non fungible tokens (NFTs). Our first collection of 205 unique NFTs have been designed and minted to symbolically represent the 205 Gewogs (groups of villages) that make up Bhutan. We believe that we are both the first hiking trail and the first tourism social enterprise to offer NFTs as part of their product range.
