The Tibet Military District is a military district of the People's Liberation Army. It was first established in 1952, possibly from elements previously part of the 18th Corps. In December 1968 it became part of the Chengdu Military Region.

The Tibet Military Region was reduced to the status of a district in 1971.[1]

Units include the 52nd Mountain Motorized Infantry Brigade, 53rd Mountain Motorized Infantry Brigade (both at Nyingchi), the 54th Mechanized Infantry Brigade (Lhasa), a Signals Regiment, and three military sub-districts, the Shannan Military Sub-District, the Xigaze Military Sub-District, and the Nyingchi Military Sub District.

Lieutenant General (zhong jiang)Yang Jinshan served as the Deputy Commander of Chengdu Military Region between July 2013 to October 2014, and Commander of Tibet Military District from December 2009 to July 2013.[2]
