Geography Of Bhutan

Leave your footprints all over the world! Know your destination through geography.

Landlocked Bhutan is arranged in the eastern Himalayas and is generally hilly and strongly forested. It is bounded for 470 kilometers by Tibet (China's Xizang Autonomous Region) toward the north and northwest and for 605 kilometers by India's conditions of Sikkim toward the west, West Bengal toward the southwest, Assam toward the south and southeast, and Arunachal Pradesh (some time ago the North-East Frontier Agency) toward the east. 

Sikkim, an eighty-eight-kilometer-wide domain, partitions Bhutan from Nepal, while West Bengal isolates Bhutan from Bangladesh by just sixty kilometers. At its longest east-west measurement, Bhutan extends around 300 kilometers; it gauges 170 kilometers at its greatest north-south measurement, shaping an aggregate of 46,500 square kilometers, a zone 33% the span of Nepal. 

In the mid-1980s, around 70 percent of Bhutan was secured with woodlands; 10 percent was secured with all year snow and icy masses; about 6 percent was forever developed or utilized for human home; another 3 percent was utilized for moving development (tsheri), a training restricted by the legislature; and 5 percent was utilized as knolls and fields. Whatever remains of the land were either infertile rough regions or scrubland.
