Tibet's Economy

The Tibetan economy consists of subsistence agriculture, or the growing of enough food to live off of.  There is very little arable land available and the main crops grown are barley, wheat, buckwheat, rye, potatoes and assorted fruits and vegetables.  Livestock are also raised, mainly in the Tibetan Plateau, among them are sheep, cattle, goals, camels, yaks and horses.

The industry that brings in the most income is that of handicrafts.  These include Tibetan hats, jewelry (silver and gold), wooden items, clothing, quilts, fabrics and carpets.  Another important revenue generator is tourism, with tourists most staying in Lhasa or going to Xihaze and the Mount Everest base camp.
