Bhutan: Kingdom in the Himalayaby Sanjay Acharya
But Bhutan is more than just
Tucked away in the eastern Himalaya, between the riverine plains of India and the cold and Arid Tibetan plateau, Bhutan is the country of dreams, dragons, legends and landscapes. With its sparkling snow-clad mountains, verdant valleys, gurgling streams and forests aglow with wild orchids, this picturesque country is like no other.
But Bhutan is more than just temperate forests and tropical jungles. It is the land where the king initiates the move toward democracy, where the people are firmly rooted in religion and are fiercely proud of their history. Most of all, it is a country on the path of development but with out sacrificing its values or polluting its environment. This book brings alive all these aspects of the dragon country through some exquisite illustrations in color and a flowing narrative.
