Chamdo, officially Qamdo, and known in Chinese as Changdu, is a prefecture-level city in the eastern part of the Tibetan Autonomous Region, China. Its seat is the town of Chengguan in Karub District. Chamdo is Tibet's third largest city after Lhasa and Shigatse.

As a capital of the former region of Kham, Qamdo has a rich history and heritage. On the banks of the Mekong River, this pleasant and laid back city is a logical place to take a break before traveling deeper into Tibet.
