What?! I don't get anything from your link; only Chinese characters. No photos. I had to look up the Tibetans you're talking about. Why is this in the Europe forum? It should be in the Asia forum.

They're tall compared to whom? Compared to what other Tibetans?

The thread is here because the OP likes to talk about tall Asians with non-Asians perhaps he is trying to convince someone that Asians are tall.

Some Asians are tall.Mongols tend to have a higher percentage of tall people, than East Asians. Some Tibetans are tall. I think, that now that the standard of living has improved in East Asia, since the war years, there are more tall people there, too.

Height, IMO, has to do in part with having a good source of calcium. Inner Asians tend to be taller, because dairy products are part of the traditional diet. Inner Asians, being from a herding economy originally, generally don't have lactose intolerance. East Asians do. I don't know if tofu has calcium, but there are some plant sources of calcium (spinach and broccoli, to name a couple).

@Ruth4Truth Some Mongolians are really very tall and strong But usually Mongolian men have a big round face. In South Asia Usually Pakistan is taller than India. In China Shandong Han nationality is relatively tall I think the highest race is the Kangba Tibetans. In China I am 183 cm tall 30%To 40 % Higher than me

Okay, I gave it a try.

When I got to the site I hit "translate" which appeared on the right. Next the screen changed and it had several rectangle outlines and in the upper left corner of each was a symbol. I hit that on the top rectangle and got a photo of a line of men. I didn't go for more.

183 cm is 6 foot I don't believe you that 40% of Chinese men are taller than you. Chinese are shorter than Americans who have an average height of about 5'10' I rarely see a Chinese person above 6 foot and when I do I notice it because it's out of the ordinary. Typically Chinese people are short mostly 5'6"-5'9" and there is nothing wrong with that.

Very regret You can't see the pictures. Kangba Tibetans look very masculine Most of them have long curly black hair. Bronze skin
