Response to LiL’s Adventures in Tibet – Part 3 – The residents of Tibet

As Tibet has been occupied by the invading Chnese forces these past decades, does that mean that you have to apply to Beijing rather than Lhasa for a tourist visa?

Tibet looks rich in culture and history but I really cannot understand what other riches were coveted by the Chinese, that they had to invade.  Its's not as if there is great demand for yak-meat in China. Did you get any sense of 'any sense' for the invasion? Were there industrial or mlitary resources that the Tibetans had hidden away under a spare goat or yak?
