The Himalayas dominate the landscape of the North of the country and many peaks exceed the 7 000 meters of altitude. Kula Kangri is generally considered the highest point in Bhutan, at 7,553 meters, but China claims it. The forest covers 70% of the national territory.                                                                                         [Wikipedia]
