Bhutan

The Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked South Asian nation situated between India and China. The entire country is mountainous except for a small strip of subtropical plains in the extreme south which is intersected by valleys known as the Duars. The elevation gain from the subtropical plains to the glacier-covered Himalayan heights exceeds 7,000 m (23,000 feet). Its traditional economy is based on forestry, animal husbandry, and subsistence agriculture, however these account for less than 50% of the GDP now that Bhutan has become an exporter of hydroelectricity. Cash crops, tourism, and development aid are also significant. An extensive census conducted in April 2006 resulted in a population figure of 672,425. Thimphu is the capital and largest city.
