Tibet is an Asian plateau region, northeast of the Himalayans. Now part of the People’s Republic of China, Tibet was once a unified empire, and the traditional homeland of the Tibetan people, the Monpas, Qiang, and Lhobas, and is now inhabited by Han and Hui people, as well. The Tibetan government was abolished in 1959 after a failed uprising, and tensions continue. Tibet is the highest region on earth, including Mount Everest, and it shares a border with Nepal.
