The Lethem–Georgetown Trail is also referred to as the “Lethem – Linden Trail.” That’s because there is paved road from Linden going to Georgetown, while from Lethem to Linden, it’s a sand/brick/clay trail.
However, most itineraries are from Lethem to Georgetown or from Georgetown to Lethem. So when people say they are “going through the trail,” they usually mean they are going from Lethem to Georgetown or vice versa.
So whether you want to call it the “Lethem – Georgetown Trail,” or the “Lethem – Linden Trail” is entirely up to you. Personally, I prefer to refer to the trail as the “Lethem – Georgetown Trail” which includes the sand trail as well as the paved road from Linden to Georgetown.
These beautiful photos of “Scenes Along the Trail” were taken by an Israeli tourist, Elhanan Oren, around the 25th of July 2019. At that time, Elhanan was doing a tour around the world by motorcycle.
Elhanan and I caught up with each at the Takutu Hotel in Lethem. Both of us being travel buffs, we started a conversation and decided to stay in touch. A few days later, after he had arrived in Georgetown, Elhanan sent me these beautiful photos he took while motorcycling through the trail.
As you’re reading this, Elhanan is still on his tour around the world – going as far as Africa and the Middle East.
Wherever you are now, thank you so much Elhanan. You are great photographer and you were a great blessing to me. God bless you.
