Bhutan is one of the least-known countries in the world. It's located in southern Asia, just north of India, and borders China and Sikkim. Bhutan is a small country with a population of about 700,000 people. It has a gross domestic product of about $2 billion, and its official language is English. But the real appeal of Bhutan is its culture and scenery. The country is studded with Buddhist monasteries, rugged limestone mountains and valleys, pristine lakes, and glittering white-water rivers. For tourists there are several attractions: the rocky landscape around Darjeeling in West Bengal state; Paro Valley; an ancient kingdom in central Bhutan known as Drukpa Lineage which spans from Eastern Tibet to South Kalimpong district ; Jigme Dorji Wangchuck Memorial Monastery at Samdrup Jongkhar National Park; Kyichu Lake in Thimphu district ; Langtang National Park in the Everest region ; Gaden Phodrang Centre for Buddhist Meditation located on the outskirts of Thimphu.
