Heading west from Pomda the paved road only lasts for 13km, as far as the 4618m-high pass Zar Gama-la (业拉山; Yèlā Shān). From here a 72-switchback dirt track descends into the Salween Valley, crossing the Ngul-chu (怒江; Nù Jiāng or Salween River) before hitting the pleasant one-street town of Pasho, known as Bāsù in Chinese.
