Map of Buddhist Monasteries in Tibet

This map shows the location of major Buddhist monasteries  in Tibet. Many are located around Lhasa between the Salween and Brahmaputra Rivers, while others are in the eastern part of Tibet bordering China, near the upper portions of the Huang Ho and Yangtze Rivers. Most of the largest rivers in Asia originate in the snowclad, mountainous regions of Tibet (others include the Irawaddy and the Mekong).
