Zhangmu port was originally China's largest open port to the South Asian subcontinent. It's located on the south slope of the Middle Himalayas and borders Nepal. Zhangmu Port is 736 kilometers from Lhasa and 120 kilometers away from Kathmandu. The natural environment around Zhangmu is very beautiful. Modern buildings and some old wooden houses are scattered alternately on both sides of the road that descends from the mountain. As a very busy commercial port, you can see a lot of goods from India, Nepal, and other places. On the street, you can often see colorful Nepalese TATA trucks. Besides Tibetans and Hans, there are also many Indians and Nepalis as well as tourists and businessmen of various colors.
