The South Asian kingdom of Bhutan may be tiny, but its breathtaking mountains, deep sense of solitude, and strongly preserved culture offer giant rewards for hikers in search of something special. Visit in the cooler months between October and December for ideal climbing conditions.
Resting on the southern slopes of Himalayas, the landlocked nation of Bhutan shares a border with Tibet to the north and India to the west and south. The terrain of the country is mostly defined by its steep and high mountains, and large network of rivers that navigate through deep valleys. The altitude stretches from 200 meters in the southern foothills to over 7,000 meters in the mountains. All of this combines to create a rich depth of biodiversity and a fascinating ecosystem.
The climate of Bhutan is largely affected by its proximity to the Himalayas. It also varies with its elevation, being subtropical in the south, temperate in the highlands, and polar in the north.
