Though the nation has a population of just 747,000 people, it has managed to maintain its independence and autonomous governance for centuries. Located along the Silk Road between Tibet, Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent and Europe, Bhutan was never conquered and colonized.
Just the 133rd ranked nation in the world by size, Bhutan has remarkable geographic diversity with lush subtropical regions in the south of the kingdom and impressive, soaring peaks in the Himalayas in the north.
