Because of its size (just 38,400 km²) and the fact that it is landlocked, Bhutan has been dubbed the ‘Switzerland of Asia’. The Himalayan mountains in the north of the country contain the highest unclimbed peak in the world, Gangkhar Puensum. There are few roads, no trains, a good local bus system, and only one airport located in the Paro Valley about an hour’s drive from the capital, Thimpu, which is located in Western Bhutan.Uma Paro Retreat
