Tibet Geography, history and Tibet tours
Tibet is a province-level administrative region of China. It is located in a high-mountain area in the southwestern part of China. And is officially called the Tibet (Chinese Xizang) autonomous region.
Furthermore, throughout its long history, Tibet at one time has governed itself as an independent state and at other times has had various levels of association with China. Regardless of China’s involvement in Tibetan affairs, Tibet’s internal government was for centuries governed by religious leader Dalai Lama.
Moreover, in 1959, Dalai Lama (spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and at that time the head of Tibet’s internal government) fled to Ladakh in India during a Tibetan revolt against Chinese control in the region. China took complete control of Tibet, installing a sympathetic Tibetan rule. And, in 1965, replaced the theocracy with a Communist administration..
