Map showing location of Tibet
Map showing location of Tibet

Tibet is located to the south-west of China, also bordering India, Nepal, Myanmar (Burma) and Bhutan.

Tibet’s historical territory would make it the world’s 10th largest nation.

Today it is under China’s occupation and has been divided up, renamed and incorporated into Chinese provinces (see more maps of Tibet here).

When China refers to Tibet, it means only part of historic Tibet: what it names the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) of China.
