Bhutan is a tiny landlocked Himalayan Kingdom, almost the size of HOLLAND in Europe and about half the size of state of INDIANA in the USA. It has an area of 38,394 Sq Km sandwiched between two giant neighbours – China in the North and India in the South. Bhutan lies between 27 30 N longitude and 90 30 E latitude. It has a population of 691,141 (National Housing and Census Bureau of Bhutan statistics). There are many local dialects in different regions of the central, south western, western and eastern regions of the country. Although Bhutan has a relatively small land mass, the wide geographical variation gives Bhutan its typical climatic character and four distinct seasonal patterns. The southern plain which is close to the Indian border has a sub tropical climate that has very pleasant in winter months. The central valley has a mild temperature with cooler environment. The alpine in the north has much chillier weather throughout the seasons. The four climatic seasons are Winter (December to February), Spring (March to May), Summer (June to August) and Autumn (September to November). The physical features stretch across all climatic zones from sub-tropical vegetation in the south with an altitude of 200m – 300m to moderate height of 2,000 – 2,500m in the central region. There is also a much higher alpine zone with the towering Himalayan ranges and glaciers perennially. These give spectacular views to visitors. The Bhutanese people are good natured, friendly and fun loving. The ruggedness of the terrain and remoteness of the valley have led to the settlement and formation of many scattered communities throughout the country. The broad classification of local dialects are: Dzongkha in south western region (national language of Bhutan), Khengkha or Bumpthapkha by central region people, Sarchopkha in the eastern region and Nepali in the southern part of the country. The capital city of Bhutan is THIMPHU, located at north western part of the country, where all the Ministerial organizations and UN House are based. Although the state religion of the Kingdom is Mahayana Buddhism, people in the eastern part of the country follow Nyingmapa sect of Buddhism. The Karmapa sect is widely practiced in the western region. The Nepalese or Lhotshampas (southern Bhutanese) in the southern belt are predominantly Hindus. The natural environment is mostly undisturbed and in pristine form. With a national goal of maintaining 60 percent of the country under forest cover at all times to come, the scope for Bhutan’s rich biodiversity is very secure. Currently, about 65 percent of the country is under forest cover and 26 percent as protected areas (National Parks and Biological Corridors), enabling harmonious existence of the Eco-system.
