Bhutan : The Land Of Thunder Dragon

Looking at the heading, the first thing that makes us scratch our head is why it is called Land of Thunder Dragon.

In the national language of Bhutan i.e., Dzongkha, Bhutan is called Druk Yul, which means the kingdom of Druk and the Bhutanese people are called Druk Gyalpo, which translates into Kings of Thunder Dragon; and hence it is known as the Land of Thunder Dragon. 

Bhutan has always been far-famed for its natural beauty. Apart from that, Bhutan is the only country where the sale of tobacco is banned, making it unique from others.
