A Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley. Mountains and the diverse flora fauna represent Bhutan as being nothing less than the best of natures presentation. Gorges that rise to the snow clad mountains and rhododendrons that grow in the wild Bhutan is home to about 40 million people. A heady mix of people, cultures and communities and natural alpine beauty make Bhutan an exciting destination. With some of the world's most adventurous roads, travelling overland or a trek through yak pastures to prayer flag-strewn passes haunted by snow leopards and red pandas will always remain an experience not easily forgotten.
