The Kingdom of Bhutan is a landslide in South Asia. Being situated in the eastern Himalayas, it is bounded by the Tibet Autonomous Region of China in the north, the state of Sikkim in India and the Chumbi Valley of Tibet in the west, the state of Arunachal Pradesh and the Indian states in the east, and west Bengal and Assam in the south. In South Asia, it is the second least populous country after the Maldives in the region. Its capital and largest city are Thimphu, while Phuntsholing is its financial center.
The country's landscape ranges from to sub-alpine Himalayan Mountains in the north lush green subtropical plains in the south, with peaks of over 7,000 meters (23,000 feett). Gangkhar Puensum is the highest peak in Bhutan and may also be the highest mountain in the world. Bhutan's wildlife is notable for its diversity.
Bhutan's climate varies with altitude from subtropical in the south to snow in the north and polar-type environment. Bhutan experiences five different seasons: summer, monsoon, autumn, winter, and spring. Western Bhutan receives heavy monsoon rainfall; hot, humid summers and cool winters in Southern Bhutan; temperature in Central and eastern Bhutan are drier than the west with warmer and warmer winters.
Bhutan has an abundant, vibrant life like the Golden Langur rare species found here. A variation of the Assamese macaque has also been recorded, which is considered by some authorities as a new species, Macaca munzala.
Bengal tigers, clouded leopards, and sloth bears live in tropical lowland and hardwood forests in the south. In the temperate zone, gray langurs, tigers, gorals, and serow found in mixed coniferous, broad, and deodar forests. Fruiting trees and bamboo provide habitat for the Himalayan black bear, red panda, squirrel, sambar, barking deer, and wild boar. In the Great Himalayan range, the Alpine habitats of in the north are home to blue sheep, snow leopards, marmot, Tibetan wolf, antelope, Himalayan musk deer, and Takin, Bhutan's national animal. Endangered wild water buffalo occur in southern Bhutan, although in small numbers.
More than 5,400 types of plants are found in Bhutan, including Pedicularis cacuminidenta. The fungus is an essential part of the Bhutanese ecosystem, with mycorrhizal species that provide forest trees with essential mineral nutrients for growth and play a key role in natural recycling with wood decay and litter rotting species.
According to the Union for Conservation of Nature, which is Swiss-based, Bhutan is seen as a model for active conservation initiatives. The state has received international approval for its promise to the preservation of its biodiversity. It is reflected in the choice to maintain at least sixty percent of the land area under forest cover, designating more than 40% of its area as national parks, reserves. And other protected areas, and recently to identify another nine percent of the land area as biodiversity corridors connecting protected areas.
All of Bhutan's protected lands are interconnected through a vast network of biological corridors, allowing animals to migrate freely across the country. Environmental protection has placed at the core of the Middle Way, the strategy for the development of the nation. It is considered not as a region, but as a set of concerns that should be influenced by Bhutan's overall approach to development planning and the force of legislation. The country's constitution mentions environmental standards in several sections.
