Tibet lies on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
of the southwest border of China. The average
height of the whole region is more than 4,000
meters above sea level, for which Tibet is known
as "Roof of the World". The highest
peak of Tibet, also the highest in Himalayas and
in the whole world, is Everest Peak, which is
as high as 8,846.27 meters above sea level.
Although a part of China, Tibet has
a unique culture of all there own. It is mainly
inhabited by Tibetans, a minority nationality
of old and mysterious people. Tourist attractions
include the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Jokhang Temple,
and a number of Buddhist sacred places.
Tibet (Xi Zang in Chinese) is to the
south of Xin Jiang Uygur Autonomous Region and
Qing Hai Province, to the west of Sichuan, to
the northwest of Yunnan and to the north of India
and Nepal. Its population of 2.3 million people
come from a variety of ethnic groups including
Tibetan, Han, Monba and Lhota. Its capital city
Northwest Tibet, mainly Qing Hai plateau,
is home to a variety of unusual and unique animals.
Across the northern expanse of Tibet, you can
see vast grasslands where horses, cattle and sheep
roam freely. The world's lowest valley, the Grand
Yarlun-tzanpo River Valley lies in east Tibet.
Nearly all Tibetans follow Tibetan
Buddhism, known as Lamaism, with the exception
of approximately 2,000 followers of Islam and
600 of Catholicism. Tibetan Buddhism was greatly
influenced by Indian Buddhism in its early time,
but after years of evolution, Tibetan Buddhism
has developed its own distinctive qualities and
practices. A well-known example is the belief
that there is a Living Buddha, who is the reincarnation
of the first, a belief alien to Chinese Buddhism.
It is freezing cold in most
time of the year. Most tourists come to visit
Tibet only in the warmest seasons, June, July,
August and early September.
