Drigung Thil Monastery is a monastery in Maizhokunggar County, Lhasa, Tibet founded in 1179. Traditionally it has been the main seat of the Drikung Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. In its early years the monastery played an important role in both religion and politics, but it was destroyed in 1290 by Mongol troops under the direction of a rival sect. The monastery was rebuilt and regained some of its former strength, but was primarily a center of meditative studies. The monastery was destroyed after 1959, but has since been partly rebuilt. As of 2015 there were about 250 resident monks.

Chundui is a township in Lhünzhub County, Tibet Autonomous Region, People's Republic of China, about 30 km (19 mi) north of the urban area of Lhasa. It comprises three villages: Chunduicun (春堆村), Kadongcun (卡东村), and Luobaduicun (洛巴堆村).

Zhujia is a village in Lhünzhub County in the Lhasa Prefecture of Tibet Autonomous Region, in China. It lies 25.5 kilometres (15.8 mi) by road west of Lhünzhub, near Hutoushan Reservoir. By road it is 90 kilometres (56 mi) from Lhasa, but considerably nearer to the north as the road forks around much further to the east first before approaching Lhünzhub and Zhujia. It appears to have been a township of Lhünzhub County, covering 126 square kilometers, with a population of 4000 at one point, with 12 village committees. However, the National Bureau of Statistics now lists Zhujia as a village and no longer as an official township-level division of Lhünzhub County.

Pana, or Pagnag, also known as Anduo, or Amdo, is a town and the seat of Amdo County in the Nagqu Prefecture of the Tibet Autonomous Region, in China. It lies 464 kilometres north of Lhasa and 138 km north of Nagqu. As of 2004 its jurisdiction had a population of about 2700, 683 of which were living in the town of Pana. The principal economic activity is animal husbandry, pastoral yak, goat, sheep, and so on. Blueschist outcrops are found in the area. The villagers in recent times organized a railway protecting committee to select locals to monitor the Qinghai-Tibet Railway.

"Constructed on the southern side of the Dangla Mountains, Amdo is a Chinese-style town on the Qinghai-Tibet Highway. The road here leads off to the west, heading towards the Mt. Kailash area via the Changthang Plateau. Many of the buses from Golmud to Lhasa used to stay overnight here."

The Pangduo Hydro Power Station is a reservoir and dam on the Lhasa River in Lhünzhub County to the east of Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region, China. The primary purposes are hydroelectric power generation and agricultural irrigation. Work started in 2008. The first turbine came into production in 2013 and the other three turbines in 2014. With annual generation capacity of 599 million kilowatt hours, it has been called the "Tibetan Three Gorges". Nevertheless, the comparison is hyperbole since the dam is only able to impound less than 1/30th that of Three Gorges.(31.9 vs 0.97 million acre-feet).
