Based on the great thickness crustal struture and complex geophysical character,this paper points out the principle for dividing terranes in Qinghai─Xizang Plateau according to earthquake activities and wave field sign,lithospheric structure and velocity character,palemagnetic mark,potential field sign ,temperature sign, geological and tectonics character. From north to south of the Qinghai─Xizang Plateau and its neighbouring regions can be devided in seven terranes, ie, Qaidam terrane, Kunlun terrane, Hon Xil-Bayan Har terrane, Qangtang terrane, Lhasa-Gangdise terrane, Himalayan terrane and Ganges Plain terrane. The distribution and character of these terranes have important rools for the studies of the formation and evolution.of the plateau and plate movement and dynamic mechanism.
