Synopsis

Nature documentary on Bhutan, or the Land of the Thunder Dragon, the only remaining Buddhist Himalayan kingdom. Shrouded in mystery, Bhutan is one of the few surviving regions whose secrets have passed undisturbed through the millennia. Since 95 percent of the Bhutanese people remain subsistence farmers or pastoralists, they live in harmony with animals, including the wild buffalo, red panda, Himalayan black bear, takin and blue sheep.
