History Of Bhutan
Culture of Bhutan It is believed that the name Bhutan is derived from the Sanskrit 'Bhotant', meaning 'the end of Tibet', or from 'Bhu-uttan', meaning 'high land'. Historically the Bhutanese have refered to their country as Druk Yul, 'land of the thunder dragon'. Bhutanese refer to themselves as Drukpa people. Bhutan is an ancient kingdom which is secluded high in the himalayas with unique customs and people who possess deeply held beliefs.
