Buddhist Monasteries in Bhutan


Bhutan is perhaps the only nation in the world which places so much emphasis on protecting its forest wealth. The country sited amidst towering Himalayan mountains is full of forests.

Most of them are located far away from civilization atop mountains or amidst forests.
