Zhilam Hostel is open and taking reservations!
Welcome to the official Zhilam Hostel website. Glad you found us and we hope we can make your travels all the more enjoyable, restful, and valuable.
On this website, you’ll not only find information on our hostel (pictures, prices, and booking information), but also links to: travel websites, trekking information, cultural insights, and even ways to be involved in our community development projects.
Over the last few days and continuing into the next several, there has been heavy snowfall on the passes heading from Kangding West towards Tagong and Danba. Traffic jams have people waiting 12 hours before they give up and return to Kangding. Please check your route and weather forecast prior to travel.
