About Zhangmu

Zhangmu is a customs town and port of entry located in Nyalam County on the Nepal-China border, just uphill and across the Bhote Koshi River from the Nepalese town of Kodari. At 2300 meters above sea level, Zhangmu has mild and humid subtropical climate, which is a rarity for Tibet.

Chinese trucks traveling on the Friendship Highway offload goods at Zhangmu and transfer them to Nepalese trucks
