Geographical location of Bhutan
Bhutan has an area that corresponds to 47,000 km2 with a population of approximately 733,643 inhabitants. Entirely landlocked, the kingdom benefits from a network of fast rivers and a rich biological diversity. Practically the entire country is covered with mountains with an average altitude of 7,000 meters. Bhutan has very high peaks, including the Gangkhar Puensum. This one measures 7,570 meters and has the particularity of being the highest non-climbed mountain in the world.
With its very high peaks, some points are covered with eternal snow. The country is distinctly divisible into three lateral zones from north to south, including the Great Himalayas, the inner Himalayas as well as the southern foothills. The Great Himalayas is an area represented by alpine meadows and a high peak that is perpetually snow-capped. The inner Himalayas are located among the valleys and wooded hills from 1,100 meters to 3,000 meters above sea level. All the major cities in Bhutan are located in this area, namely Thimpu, Paro, Bumthang, Mongar, Punakha, Trongsa and Trashigang. Also known as the “Foothills of the Himalayas”, the southern foothills occupy the part of southern Bhutan. The latter has a very varied climate and vegetation.
