Transcript of Tibet

Tibet Autonomous Region Location Place Region Human/Envirnment Interaction Movement I chose Tibet because I knew it had an
interesting culture and background but
I didn't know much more than that. I thought it would be a cool province to study. Tibet is located in the South Western part of China. It borders Xinjiang Uyghur by the north and Qinghia by the north east. Sichuan and Yunnan are east of Tibet. Now for bordering countries there are quite a few. On the west is India and on the South is Myanmar which is formerly known as Burma, Bhutan, and Nepal.The absolute location of Tibets capital Lhasa is 91 N and 30 E. Physical Characteristics Tibet is in the Himilaya Mountain
It is the highest region in the world
with and average elevation of at least
4,000 meters or 12,000 feet. It got the
nickname, '' The Roof of the World''.

There is a spirtual lake and
mountain in Ngari that is in the western
part ofTibet. Animals Wild donkeys in Ngari grasing at a grassland. Some Mongolian gazelles Human Characteristics The population of Tibet is 2,740,000 and the population density is 2.2 people per square kilometer.Their ethnic group percentages are very different from the rest of China. 93% is Tibetan 6%Han 1%others like Hui, Moinba, Lhoba.Mostly Tibetan is spoken. Work Sited 30 percent of China's output of water, solar, and wind energy is produced there. China is a leading dam builder which is good and bad. The good is that they are making green energy. The bad is that they are making to many and so now 70% of China's water is undrinkable or can not support aquatic life. Tibet did not use to be a part of China. It us to be theocracy which meant it was under the leadership of Buddhist lamas or the monks. In 1959 the Dalai lamas fled to India because China was trying to take over. They did. In 1969 China changed Tibet into a communist administration. "China Information - Places in China - Tibet." China Information - Guide to China.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Architecture_of_Lhasa By Haley Darlinton It is very isolated because the Himalayas, Karakoram Range, and the Kunlun Mountains surround it. On the mountains nothing grows but a few grasses and shrubs because the average temperature of Tibet is only 34 degrees Fahrenheit. Down in the vally were the people live they can grow crops and a few trees like an oak tree or some fruit trees. Tibet's largest solar plant. Their economy is based mostly off of agirculture, but also tourism for the mountain climbing and to see the homeland of the Dalai lama. Architecture in Lhasa The Potala Palace
