Abstract: The Tibetan plateau to the north of Himalayas is a high-altitude, dry, cold region with low atmospheric aerosols. The highest part of the plateau lies in Changthang Ladakh and Tibet, and has enormous potential for future astronomical facilities. Indian Institute of Astrophysics has established the Indian Astronomical Observatory, Hanle (4500 m amsl) in Changthang Ladakh. Details of some sites and their characteristics, current as well as planned facilities, and areas of ongoing astronomical research are presented in the poster.
