With her bewildering nature, home to several endangered species you can encounter in the wild, she has managed to stay unspoiled by mass tourism. Wherever you are in the kingdom, all still breathes purity. This small country offers you subtropical densely wooded valleys, savannah grasslands, bamboo jungles, traditionally cultivated land and high Himalayan Mountains with eternal snow. The Kula Kangri (7.553 meters) overlooks the valleys as an omnipotent king.
