Bhutan is a country in South Asia that is entirely enclosed by land or “landlocked.” It is located on the southern slope of the eastern Himalayan Mountains. The Kingdom of Bhutan has a very unique landscape: it is subtropical in the south and mountainous in the north. Some of the Himalayan peaks in northern Bhutan reach around twenty-three thousand feet! There are many extraordinary animals that live in Bhutan: in the southern region, there is the Bengali tiger, clouded leopard and sloth bear. There are many forested regions filled with fruit-bearing trees and bamboo and this is a habitat for the Himalayan black bear and red panda. This kingdom is fascinating because of its varying landscape and vast population of different animals.
