what is the difference between Nepal Tibet and Bhutan?
- RandalLv 79 years agoFavorite Answer
Nepal has a rich geography. The mountainous north has eight of the world's ten tallest mountains, including the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest, called Sagarmatha in Nepali.
Tibet, called “Bod” by Tibetans, is a plateau region in Central Asia and the indigenous home to the Tibetan people. The "roof of the world".
Bhutan existed as a patchwork of minor warring fiefdoms until the early 17th century, when the area was unified by the Tibetan lama and military leader Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, who fled religious persecution in Tibet and cultivated a separate Bhutanese identity.

Bhutan known as 'Druk' pronounced as bdrug literally means Land of Dragons. It was unified by high Tibetan master who came to Bhutan upon being offered to him by Protectress deity Paldhen Lhamo (mahakali). Shabdrung or Zhabdrung literally means approximately at whose feet one submits) (Tibetan: ཞབས་དྲུང་ངག་དབང་རྣམ་རྒྱལ་). He was the immediate reincarnation of the Fourth Gyalwang Drukchen Pema karpo and eighteenth Drukpa or throne-holder and "hereditary prince" of the traditional Drukpa seat and estate of Ralung, Tibet. Therefore, he named Bhutan as druk (Dragons) after establishing Drukpa Lineage as a state religion of Bhutan. The Shabdrung also established the distinctive dual system of government under the Tsa Yig legal code, by which control of the country was shared between a spiritual leader (the Je Khempo) to preside over the religious institutions and an administrative leader (the Druk Desi) as head of secular affairs, a policy which exists in modified form to this day. The Shabdrung title of Bhutan is same with Dalai Lama title of Tibet. Both Tibet and Bhutan are Buddhist kingdoms and are Mongoloid race. Therefore, Bhutanese culture is very similar to Tibet (ans) culture. Besides Tibetan Buddhism they also share same scripts, similar cultures and languages are mutually intelligible. Bhutanese national language Dzongkha (རྫོང་ཁ་) is often regarded as dialect of Lhasa by Tibetans. Both the Bhutanese language and Tibetan language falls under the Sino-Tibetan language group.
The bottom-line is Tibet and Bhutan are culturally and ethnically similar.
On the other hand, Nepal are Indo-Aryan people and believers of Hindu religion. They share similar script and the languages with India . Furthermore, they are similar to India , Bangladesh , Pakistan and other south Asian countries both linguistically and culturally.

With it being the Bush administration and just seeing your question without the details, I was expecting you to say that he said that Nepal and Tibet were the twin step-children of Borneo.

I did see the show, but missed him confusing the two. Thats a good pickup by you, but I am sure the conservative mass media will not pick up on it. He continues the Bush tradition of appointing incompetent cabinet- Michael Brown, Condo Rice, Alberto Gonzalez, etc. People who would be better suited as cast members of Sesame Street. I am not sure why you would expect a National Security advisor to know a little bit about one of the planet's major superpowers. It just isn't an important job for the protection of the United States.....
