Map of Amdo Ngawa

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

This is another mini post to share a map of Amdo Ngawa (Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture).

There is significant interest in Amdo Ngawa these days due to the spate of self-immolations that have occurred in this region.

This downloadable Tibetan-Chinese bilingual (200 dpi) map of Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture can be helpful in clarifying some of the confusions about the precise locations and names of these sites. It is one of the most detailed and accurate maps of the region published by the Chinese government.




Check out this recent ABC TV report to learn more about the situation on the ground. 

For a latest map of all the self-immolations in Tibet, see Rangzen Alliance website

Thanks for posting this map. Getting good maps of Tibet in Tibetan is extremely difficult. Please post more of these maps for different prefectures of Tibet if you have them.
