The peaceful mountain country of Bhutan, also known as “Land of the Peaceful Dragon”, is situated in the eastern part of the Himalaya. With Tibet to the north and India to the south, Bhutan is situated in a great and cultural area. Within its own borders, Bhutan forms a staircase to the land of Sangri-La. With green grass on the plains and forest all the way up to the highest and most impressive peaks on earth. In between you will find both semi-tropical and alpine forests.
The population of Bhutan lived in isolation from the rest of the world and in isolation of most of their own country for the better part of their existence. Now the small Himalaya country has opened its borders to foreigners looking for a glimpse of the ancient tradition and culture of Bhutan. People in the alpine parts of this country still live in tents made of yak-hair. Most of the country is also covered in thick forest, filled with a wide range of both animals and plants. The better of Himalayan part of the country is still unexplored and it offers some of the best trekking and climbing in the Himalayan region.
