Zham Overview

The border city of Zham (aka ZhangMu) is a lively place with hundreds of trucks going from Tibet to Nepal exchanging the goods here. The city is also unique in that it is a mountain town, with the main street going down zigzagging along, narrow, full of parked trucks! There are waterfalls running down from the mountain and it has no lack of water or sounds of waterfall. If you get a view of the city from the Nepal side, it is quite impressive.

There are lots of money changers around, and you will be approached many times when you go to restaurants or walk on the street. They actually have good exchange rates, so check the official rate and make your best deal (it is better than you can get in Nepal). And bring flashlights when you walk at night, as the street can be dark and wet and may have some holes in the pavement.
