TIBET IS NOT PART OF CHINA!!!!!
This is not a slur against the Chinese people. I'm stating this for the benefit of anyone who is not aware that Tibet was forcibly annexed by China and who also is not aware that the railway to Lhasa was most protested by Tibetans and sympathizers of the cause of Tibet. Since the 1950's, the Chinese government has destroyed numerous Buddhist temples and monasteries in Tibet and a large part of the Tibetan population lives in exile, including the Dalai Lama. Anyone who even carries a photo of the Dalai Lama in Tibet is in risk of imprisonment (there are hubpages with a lot of information about this topic). The building of the railway was very damaging to the Tibetan ecology.
If you are interested in touring Tibet, and also Nepal and Bhutan, I would suggest taking a look at Snowlion, either the newspaper or online, for touring companies that have the interests of the Tibetan people at heart.
