Welcome to Rainer's
Tibet Pages

These pages are dedicated to the fascinating stamps and postal history of Tibet.


Tibet: the name of this country is synonymous with the exotic, esoteric and mystic – and even today, as part of the People’s Republic of China, Tibet is constantly in the news.

As a stamp collector you cannot ignore the political realities, as these developments had an immense impact on the postal history of Tibet.

These web pages are dedicated to the so-called local postal service of Tibet, which constitutes the main part of Tibetan Postal History. Nevertheless, in order to foster an understanding of the country’s postal history and the historical implications, other areas of Tibetan postal history will also be mentioned.


Maybe I can encourage a few collectors to start a Tibetan collection as well; I have never regretted that decision which I made over 30 years ago


Please navigate through the site by using the menu on the left; however, please note that these pages are undergoing a major facelift and not all links are working at present. Also the images on some pages are very old and will be replaced in due course.
