Bhutan

Bhutan - Land of the Thunder Dragon

Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked state situated in South Asia at the eastern edge of the Himalayas. Bordered by the Republic of India to the south, east, and west, and the People's Republic of China to the north, Bhutan is also adjacent to Nepal through the Indian state of Sikkim, and separated from Bangladesh by the Indian states of Assam and West Bengal. Historically, Bhutan was a patchwork of warring fiefdoms until the 17th century, when it was unified by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, who forged a distinct Bhutanese identity after fleeing religious persecution in Tibet. Contact with the British Empire in the 20th century led to strong ties with India after independence. Bhutan, lauded as the happiest country in Asia by Business Week in 2006, boasts a diverse landscape ranging from subtropical plains to Himalayan heights exceeding 7,000 meters. With Vajrayana Buddhism as the state religion and a predominantly Buddhist population of 691,141, along with a Hindu minority, the capital and largest city is Thimphu. In 2007, Bhutan transitioned from absolute to constitutional monarchy, holding its inaugural general election. A member of the United Nations and SAARC, Bhutan hosted the sixteenth SAARC summit in 2010, with a total reported area of 38,394 square kilometers since 2002, differing from the prior 1997 estimation of approximately 46,500 km2.
