The Sino-Nepal Friendship Bridge (Chinese: 中尼友谊桥; pinyin: Zhōng-Ní Yǒuyì Qiáo; Nepali: मितेरी पुल Miterī Pula) is a bridge spanning the Sun Kosi river, linking Kodari in Sindhulpalchok District, Nepal and Zhangmu, China.

From the bridge on the Nepalese side, Kodari in Sindhulpalchok District, the Arniko Rajmarg (abbreviated ARM; rajmarg means highway) links to Kathmandu. It is named after the famous architect Arniko.

In the other direction, the China National Highway 318 goes to Zhangmu (Dram) and on to Shanghai. The Tibetan part of the highway between Zhangmu and Lhasa is known as the Friendship Highway.
