Approximately the size of Switzerland, with a breathtaking
landscape of thick forests, patchwork paddy fields, rugged
mountains and lush valleys dotted with centuries-old dzongs
(fortress monasteries) and rural villages, Bhutan may be small, but
there's a lot to see. Stretching from the high Himalayas in
its far north, through the steep foothills in its centre to the
plains of India in the south, this magnificent country offers a
wealth of geographical and cultural riches.
