Paintings Of Travels To Bhutan


Mountainous Bhutan, half the size of Indiana, is situated on the southeast slope of the
Himalayas, bordered on the north and east by Tibet and on the south and west and east
by India. The landscape consists of a succession of lofty and rugged mountains and deep
valleys. In the north, towering peaks reach a height of 24,000 ft (7,315 m).

The landscape of Bhutan explodes with blossoming things, ensuring an enchanting experience
for those new to botany and seasoned enthusiasts. Among them dendrobium, cymbidium,
bulbophyllum, calanthe and goodyera are a few of the orchid kind as well as beautiful
species of rhododendrons.
Although archeological exploration of Bhutan has been limited, evidence of civilization
in the region dates back to at least 2000 B.C. Aboriginal Bhutanese, known as Monpa, are
believed to have migrated from Tibet. The traditional name of the country since the 17th
century has been Drukyul, Land of the Drokpa (Dragon People), a reference to the dominant
branch of Tibetan Buddhism that is still practiced in the Himalayan kingdom.
