The idea of a river terminal may be foreign to many, but those traveling near the Yaluntzangpu River realize its importance. This river terminal sits at the edge of the water with beautiful views of surrounding mountains. The terminal is situated right before travellers enter the Namchabawa Snow Mountain and is a useful rest stop for both locals and tourists.

The open-concept and minimalist interior house the bare essentials, like tables, chairs and washrooms. Its design follows a theme of local materials. Door frames, ceilings and floors are all made from locally sourced timber. The entire interior however is fully furnished using locally found rock and stone, making a stunning feature wall running the length of the river terminal. The building's construction follows the topography of the land, and from a distance, blends in perfectly with its surroundings.
