Published paleomagnetic data from well-dated sedimentary rocks and lavas from the Lhasa terrane have been reevaluated in a statistically consistent framework to assess the latitude history of southern Tibet from ca. 110 Ma to the present. The resulting apparent polar wander path shows that the margin of the Lhasa terrane has remained at lat ~20° ± 4°N from ca. 110 to at least 50 Ma and has drifted northward to its present latitude of 29°N since the early Eocene. This latitude history provides a paleomagnetically determined collision age between the Tibetan Himalaya and the southern margin of Asia that is...
