Welcome to Chamdo


Chamdo has had a troubled relationship with nearby China. The Chinese warlord Zhao Erfeng (the ‘Butcher of Kham’) captured Chamdo in 1909 and ruled the region until the Tibetans recaptured it in 1917. Chamdo fell to communist troops in 1950, marking the beginning of the end for independent Tibet.
