Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a beautiful Himalayan Buddhist country nestled between Tibet and India. It is heavily forested with one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Large rivers flow south from the Himalayas surrounded by terraced red rice paddies, while monasteries and prayer flags dot the countryside. Strict environmental laws help to preserve this unique pristine landscape. All buildings in Bhutan are built in the traditional style with beautiful intricate carvings and painted folk art around doors and windows similar to those in Tibet.
