Gyirong-The Gateway Border between Tibet and Nepal

Gyirong has recently grown into one of the most major connecting routes between Nepal and Tibet. Owing to the immense earthquake that took place on 2005 and left Nepal devastated, the Zhangmu border or the Sino-Nepal border was also destroyed completely. As a result, Gyirong port has now become the major Sino-Nepal border that helps in its connectivity with Tibet. It has gradually grown into one of the most important gates strategically and also trade purposes.

As the Himalayas intersect from eastern to the western side of the Gyirong port, they act as the natural guards against the northward flowing hot air from the Indian Ocean. Therefore the northern and the southern parts of the ridges of the mountains exhibit completely different climates. Semi-arid monsoon climate is experienced by the northern part of Gyirong region. It is type of a monsoon climate, which is the middle of the winter and summer climate. The temperature during the warm months ranges from 10 degree centigrade to 18 degree centigrade whereas in the winter time it might even drop to -10 degree centigrade. The average temperature throughout the year remains two degree centigrade. The rainfall measured throughout the year ranges from 300mm to 600mm as Gyirong faces humid continental semiarid climactic condition.
