Bhutan - A Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas' eastern edge, is a land of monasteries,
fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic topography ranging from subtropical plains to steep
mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are a
destination for serious trekkers. Taktsang Palphug (Tiger's Nest) monastery, a sacred
site, clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.
