Nyalam County Tibet Tours
Nyalam (Chinese: 聂拉木; Pinyin: Nièlāmù), traditionally known as Tsongdu is a small Tibetan county near the Nepal border. It is 35 km from Zhangmu town in the same county, which is the point of entry to Nepal.
Nyalam is situated at 3,750 metres (12,300 ft) above sea level. A town of stone buildings and tin roofs, it is nicknamed 'The Gate of Hell' by the Nepalese traders because the trail between Nyalam and the Nepalese border was so treacherous to negotiate. Heading south from Nyalam the road drops abruptly through the gorge of the Matsang Tsangpo or Sun Kosias it is known in Nepal.
Nyalam is on Friendship Highway/Arniko Rajmarg, 30 km north of the Nepalese border and 152 km north of Kathmandu. Further into Tibet, it is 38km. to the 5,050m Lalung-La or Thong La pass crossing into the basin of the Arun/Bum-Chu River, 152 km to Tingri (gateway to the northern side of Mount Everest), 235 km to the 5,250m Lakpa La or Gyatso-La pass crossing into the basin of the Yarlung Tsangpo/Brahmaputra River and about 750 km to Lhasa.
