Bhutan forms a gigantic staircase from a narrow strip of land in the south and an altitude of 300 meters up to high Himalayan Peaks in the north with an altitude over 7000 meters.
The mountains are magnificent, the forests are dense, the people are delightful, the air is pure, the architecture imposing, the religion exciting, the art superb. The beauty of the pastoral landscape can seem unreal to the travelers from the industrialized world: houses with brightly decorated window frames and shingled roofs: patchworks of green paddy fields, plots of tawny buckwheat, oak forests, a covered bridge, fences of intricately woven bamboo, a man leaning on a wooden rail trampling his harvest, a women weaving in the open air, a baby laced into a horse’s saddle bag, Yaks browsing in a grove of giant rhododendron.
The National Language of Bhutan is Dzongkha and the Bhutanese people, are also called by Drukpas. Bhutan is the only country in the world where the tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism is the official state religion.
