Bhutan, a Buddhist Kingdom on the Himalayas “is a sovereign state Landlocked in the Eastern Himalayas in South Asia. Bhutan Borders China to the north and India to the south, east and west. To the west, it is separated from Nepal by the Indain state of Sikkim; and further south it is separated from Bangladesh by the Indain states of Assam and west Bengal.

Bhutan is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or Dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peak such as 7,326m Jomolhari are very popular trekking destination. Paro Taktshang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro valley.

 The climate in Bhutan varies with elevation, from subtropical in the south to temperate in the highlands and polar-type climate, with year-round snow in the north. Temperatures can vary between 15-30 degrees Celsius in the southern part of Bhutan. Bhutan experiences four distinct seasons: autumn, spring, summer and winter.
