Description: The Physical Map of Bhutan showing major geographical features like elevations, mountain ranges, deserts, seas, lakes, plateaus, peninsulas, rivers, plains, landforms and other topographic features.
Bhutan is located at the eastern end of the Himalayas. It is situated in South Asia and is surrounded by China to its north and to its south, east and west directions by India.
The country is landlocked between the Indian states of West Bengal, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. Its topography features mostly the rugged steep and high mountains.
The maximum elevation of peaks is about 7,000 metres. The GangkharPuensum at 7,570 metres, is the highest peak of Bhutan and is the highest mountain that remains unclimbed by humans in the world. The valley of DrangmeChhu which exits at about 100 metres is the lowest point in the country.
The alpine shrubs and meadows of the eastern Himalayas form an arc in the northern region. The Black Mountains act as a watershed between the river systems of the DrangmeChhu and the Mo Chhu. The southern region is covered by the Shivalik range which descend into the plains of Duars.
The main rivers of Bhutan are the Torsa, the Sankosh, the Raidak and the Manas. All these rivers merge into the Brahmaputra River in India. About 65% area of Bhutan is densely covered by forests.
