People of Tibet - The Divinest of All !
Tibet serves as a home to
many communities like Menpa, Han, Chinese, Sherpa, Dengs and Luopa. The area
is quite thinly populated with only 1.68 persons per sq. km on an average.
The overall population of Tibet is around 260,0000. The ancestors of the
present Tibetans lived on both sides of Tsangpo River and mainly earned
their livelihood from cultivation of barely, wheat and peas. There is also
nomadic population in Tibet that keeps moving from one place to other
herding their yaks and sheep. But slowly more and more people are moving
towards cities for better education and job.
Are Tibetans A Holy Lot !
You will witness a number of religions
practice prevailing in the region as the majority of the population is the
firm follower of Buddhism. People who follow Islam and Catholicism are
present in large numbers, especially in Lhasa and Yanjing. Tibet has the
largest number of monks in the world with almost 1/3 of the population being
a monk. They are considered to be the ultimate followers of Buddhism. Even
you will feel internally rejuvenated by finding the people so optimistic and
so proud of their beliefs and religion. Tibetan is the main language that
is spoken here. Although the accent and pronunciation varies from region to
region but most of them belong to the Sino- Tibetan phylum.
What is the Occupation of Tibetans !
Majority of the people are
still confined to agriculture sector, but the number has been steadily
declining. More and more people are getting educated and moving out into the
cities for jobs in factories and government postings. Since most tourists
more often travel only to the important destinations and leave, they miss
out on a lot of local and unique stuff that is really worth visiting.
