Tibet's Geography

With an average elevation of over 4,000 m, Tibet is considered to be the highest region in the world and is often called the "Roof of the World."  This comes as no surprise, especially since southern Tibet is located in the Himalayas, which contains many of the world's highest summits.  In addition to it's incredible heights, Tibet is also one of the most isolated areas on earth, with most of the people living in elevations ranging from 1200 m to 5100 m.  One of the most famous peaks found in Tibet is Mount Everest (8848 m), the highest mountain in the world.

Tibet with it's mountains is the source and dividing line of the Asian continent's major rivers, with the Brahmaputra being the most important.  Many of the rivers in Tibet can be used for hydroelectricity, but this potential hasn't been developed as of yet.
