Culture and TraditionBhutan was relatively isolated until the early 1950s and traditional Bhutan has changed more in the last 50 years than it has in the previous 400 years. It has sought to preserve its cultural identity in the face of modernization and increasing external influences. It is believed that ensuring protection and preservation of the unique culture would assist in protecting the sovereignty of the nation.
Flora and FaunaBhutanese flora is considered to be of immense scientific value not only due to the high level of diversity but also because of the relatively good state of preservation compared to other Himalayan regions. There are over 5000 species of vascular plants which include diverse species of orchids, rhododendrons and other endemic plant species. Close to 200 species of mammal are known to occur in Bhutan of which 27 are globally threatened species like the Royal Bengal tiger.
