The mystical Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked nation in South Asia. It is located amid the eastern end of the Himalaya Mountains and is bordered to the south, east and west by India and to the north by Tibet. Bhutan used to be one of the most isolated nations in the world, but advances including direct international flights, internet, mobile phone networks, and cable television have increasingly opened the doors. Yet, the government takes great measures to preserve the nation's traditional culture, identity and environment. The landscape ranges from subtropical plains in the south to the Himalayan heights in the north, with some peaks exceeding 23,000 feet. The population is predominantly Buddhist, with Hinduism being the second-largest religion. The capital and largest city is Thimphu. After centuries of direct monarchic rule, Bhutan held its first democratic elections in March 2008. Visiting Bhutan is a once in a lifetime rewarding, educational and wish fulfilling experience.
