People and languages of Bhutan

The national language of Bhutan is Dzongkha, which is actually derived from the Tibetan. But with the passage of the time, the Bhutanese people begin to speak English and other several languages in their day to day life. The government and legal documents should be written in both English and Dzongkha. In some parts of the Bhutan, people used to speak Nepali too. Some portion of the people of the Bhutanese people is covered with the Nepalese people. The southern part of the Bhutan is almost covered by the Nepali speaking people, whereas the southern part of the Bhutan is covered with Sharchop speaking people. The editing of the Dzongkha into the English is a very difficult task.

Similarly, the people of the Bhutan can be categorized into three major groups. The Sharchop used to live in the east of the country. It is believed that the Sharchop are the original and oldest habitants of the Bhutan country. Similarly, the western regions of the Bhutan are used to live by the Ngalongs who are actually the people from the Tibet. The southern part of the Bhutan is the inhabitation of Lhotshampas which represents the Nepalese people or Nepali speaking people. The population density of the people living at the Bhutan is comparatively low as majority of people used to live at the rural areas of the Bhutan. The total population of the Bhutan is around 0.7 million. The Northern Bhutanese covers about 50% of the total population whereas the Lhotshampas has covered about 35% of the total population. And the remaining percent of the population is covered by the indigenous and the migrant people of the country.
