Bhutan is known as the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’. This is not only literal, describing thunderstorms as they roll in across the mountains, but also symbolic, referring to the strength and stability of the kingdom. Bhutan still retains much of its domestic lifestyle, largely unchanged from the time of its 16th-century unification, and is one of the few remaining Buddhist Monarchies in the world.
