Zhangmu Port locates at Zhangmu Town, the border between China and Nepal. It is the largest border trade center in Tibet. However, after the April 2015 Nepal Earthquake, there was huge damage in the border. So local residents had to leave Zhangmu Town and the port transferred to Shigatse and Lhasa as well.
