Bhutan, the mystic Himalayan kingdom is the last Shangri-la on this earth. Bhutan is bordered by its great neighbours, India and China. Bhutan is only one third of the size of Nepal, but slightly larger than Switzerland. Bhutan, is known to the world by several names such as the 'the Last Shangri-La' or 'the Last Place on the Roof of the World'. Though the original name from the time of Marco Polo was 'Bootan', the natives prefer to call their country as 'Druk Yul', or the 'Land of the Peaceful Thunder Dragon'. DrukYul means ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’, which can also be seen on its flag. The kingdom of Bhutan lies nestled in the folds of the mighty Himalayas. It is also the most mysterious and the least modernized country in South Asia. Monarchy, under the reign of King Jigme Singye Wangchuck exists in Bhutan. The capital of Bhutan is Thimphu.
