It is a small land-locked country that has common borders with China to the north, the Indian territories of Assam and Western Bengal to the south and east, and Sikkim to the west. Bhutan’s early history is obscure. Most forms of historical records were destroyed by fire, earthquakes, flood and warfare.
However, there is some archaeological evidence that the country was inhabited as early as 2000 BC, including stone tools and weapons and remnants of large stone structures. Artefacts indicate that Bonism (the belief that all beings in the universe have souls) was practiced before the introduction of Buddhism in the seventh century A.D.
The Bhutanese community in Australia is very small – the 2001 census identified 63 Australian residents who were born in Bhutan (38 males and 25 females). However, through the Australian aid programme a number of Bhutanese have undertaken tertiary education in Australian universities including a significant number of Bhutanese government ministers and senior government administrators. Australia has also supported a number of development programmes in Bhutan through its aid programmes.
Bhutan, the land of the peaceful thunder dragon is known to the world by several names such as the ‘the Last Shangri-La’ or ‘the Last Place on the Roof of the World.’ Though the original name from the time of Marco Polo was ‘Bootan,’ the natives prefer to call their country ‘Druk Yul,’ or the Land of the Peaceful Thunder Dragon. Nestled in the lap of the Himalayas, Bhutan offers spectacular mountain views, immense scenic beauty and a unique culture and lifestyle. Mountain Layers Treks and Pvt. Ltd.
