NotesEedit

  1. The term Lasa Shi (拉萨市) leeterally means "Lhasa ceety" or "Lhasa municipality". It is at the same level as a prefectur for admeenistrative purposes. It contains the urban area o Lhasa, the admeenistrative center, but mainly consists o remote rural auries. Thare is no precise Cheenese term for the urban aurie. The Cheenese eften refer tae it as chengguanqu but offeecially Chengguan Destrict, or Urban Destrict, includes rural fermin auries in addeetion tae the ceety.[1]
