" Land of thunder dragon"

1/8
HIGHLIGHTS:

Bhutan is also called "The land of Thunder Dragon" because of the violent and large thunderstorms that whip down through the valleys from the Himalayas. Bhutan, nestled in the Eastern Himalayas between China and India, the small Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan opened itself to the world only in the 1960s. It had been largely mysterious even to its neighbors but abandoning its self-imposed policy of isolation had it grappling to find a precarious balance between modernization and the preservation of its culture and traditions. Explore the best of Bhutan.
