In 1865, Britain and Bhutan signed the Treaty of Sinchulu, under which Bhutan would receive an annual subsidy in exchange for ceding some border land. Under British influence, a monarchy was set up in 1907; three years later, a treaty was signed whereby the British agreed not to interfere in Bhutanese internal affairs and Bhutan allowed Britain to direct its foreign affairs. This role was assumed by independent India after 1947. Two years later, a formal Indo-Bhutanese accord returned the areas of Bhutan annexed by the British, formalized the annual subsidies the country received, and defined India's responsibilities in defense and foreign relations. A refugee issue of some 85,000 Bhutanese in Nepal remains unresolved; 90% of the refugees are housed in seven United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) camps. Maoist Assamese separatists from India, who have established themselves in the southeast portion of Bhutan, have drawn Indian cross-border incursions.

    by Smita Paul Listen with RealAudio Need audio help? Deep in the Himalayas, wedged between India and China, is the mysterious kingdom of Bhutan. For most of its history, Bhutan has been isolated from the world. That's partly due to geography; Bhutan is among the more inaccessible spots on Earth. But it's also by choice: It was only 25 years ago the government issued its first visa. Smita Paul spent a couple of weeks biking through this mountain kingdom.

    Bhutan is a land locked Mountain Kingdom, bordered by Tibet, China, India, near Nepal and Bangladesh. The original spelling from Marco Polo times was "Bootan" in the Roman Alphabet, but is now called "Druk Yul." Bhutan is not involved with the Industrial Age, the World Wars, nor the Arms Race, and until recently not even cyberspace. In fact many of us didn't know you existed until we got your e-mail. Bhutan is the "Roof of the World" .
    Bhutan is a Himalayan monarchy. By treaty, it accepts the guidance of India in foreign affairs. Facilities for tourism are limited.
    TOURISM IN BHUTAN
    Tourism in Bhutan was privatized by the Royal Government of Bhutan in 1991. Today it is a vibrant business with 33 private operators at the helm of affairs. The Royal Government of Bhutan adheres strongly to a policy of low volume, high value tourism.
    There are, however, problems associated with tourism which, if not controlled, can have devastating and irreversible impact on the local environment, culture and identity of the people. Realizing these problems and the fact that the resources on which tourism is based are limited,...
