Nyalam County (simplified Chinese: 聂拉木县; traditional Chinese: 聶拉木縣; pinyin: Nièlāmù Xiàn; Tibetan: gnya’ lam rdzong) is a county in Tibet’s Shigatse Prefecture. It borders on Nepal.
The land area of the county is 7,903 km2 (3,051 sq mi). The population as of 2003 was 10,000. The postal code for the county is 858300.
The county seat is in Nyalam Town.
The other town of the county is Dram, also known under its Tibetan name Dram, or Nepali Khasa. It is located near the border and is the point of entry from Nepal. At “merely” 2300 meters elevation about the sea level, Zhangmu has mild and humid subtropical climate, which is a rarity for Tibet.
