Abstract:

Nestling between India and Tibet, this remote Himalayan mountain kingdom is a jewel of Buddhism, protected by impenetrable jungle to the south and daunting ranges of snow-capped mountains to the north. Independent since the 8th century and with its age-old traditions very much alive, Bhutan is a unique example of original Himalayan culture, a priceless asset in the modern world which seems to be shrinking day by day as large jets deposit thousands of tourists to every corner of the earth.
