    Informantion about Asia Countries

    Bhutan has the highest happiness index in the world. With a population of 810,000, the Bhutanese account for about 50% of the total population, and the Nepalese account for about 35%. The Bhutanese Dzongkha and English are both official languages. Tibetan Buddhism (Kagyupa) is the state religion, and the Nepalese residents believe in Hinduism. The currency is ngultrum. The capital Thimphu is the political and religious center of the country. In Sanskrit, the Kingdom of Bhutan means "the border of Tibet". Bhutan is also known as The Kingdom of the Dragon.

    Roughly the size of Switzerland or 1/2 the size of Indiana, Bhutan encompasses 46,500 sq. km. of varied terrain, with elevations up to 24,777 square feet. It features three distinct geographic regions… the high Himalayas of the north, the hills and the valleys of the center, and the foothills and plains of the south. Great and pristine rivers run throughout the country, sculpting its geography and providing water for the communities as well as a source for hydropower.

    Where is Bhutan located on the map? Bhutan is a small, completely landlocked nation nestled in the Himalayan mountain range. It is south of the Tibetan region of China, north of India, and to the east of Nepal.
