Information
Tibet
Flag from 1912-1950OFFICIAL NAME: Xizang Zizhiqu
CAPITAL CITY: Lhasa
BORDER COUNTRIES: Bhutan, India, Nepal, Myanmar (Burma)
RELATED COUNTRIES: China

BACKGROUND: Tibet is comprised of the three provinces of Amdo (now split by China into the provinces of Qinghai, Gansu & Sichuan), Kham (largely incorporated into the Chinese provinces of Sichuan, Yunnan and Qinghai), and U-Tsang (which, together with western Kham, is today referred to by China as the Tibet Autonomous Region).

The Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) comprises less than half of historic Tibet and was created by China in 1965 for administrative reasons. It is important to note that when Chinese officials and publications use the term "Tibet" they mean only the TAR.

Tibetans use the term Tibet to mean the three provinces described above, i.e., the area traditionally known as Tibet before the 1949-50 invasion.
