Boarding majestic Himalayan peaks, the Tibetan Plateau covers the entire Tibet (TAR) and extends to parts of western Sichuan, Yunan, and Qinghai, Xinjiang and Gansu. Not only is is where Mt. Everest, the world's summit, lies but also is home to a diverse cultural and historical heritage in the world.
