Tibet was a region located in southwest China. It was the highest region on Earth, encompassing a large portion of the Himalayan mountain range.

Flora and fauna

The yeti was native to the mountains of Tibet.[1] The creature was frequently sighted by Muggles, and, as a result, Tibet was one of the major offenders in terms of breaches of Clause 73 of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy.[1] An International Task Force was permanently stationed in the Tibetan mountains to try to contain the problem.[1]

In 1995, Harry Potter asked Neville Longbottom if there was some sort of "Tibetan Turnip" that would allow him to breathe underwater for an hour, so that he could compete in the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament.[2] However, since Harry was most likely being facetious, it is doubtful whether such a plant actually existed.

History

A 1926 issue of Transfiguration Today carried an interview with the Tibetan Oracles in which they shared their teachings.[3]

While Sirius Black was still being hunted by the Ministry of Magic in 1995, the Auror assigned to lead the investigation, Kingsley Shacklebolt, knew Sirius was innocent, and thus misled the Ministry into believing that Sirius was hiding in Tibet.[4]

In July 1996, The Guardian reported that the then-current Dalai Lama was given the Congressional Gold Medal of Honour by the United States, which China objected to strongly,[5] presumably due to the Tibetan sovereignty issue.
