The trail passes through some high mountain passes and scarcely spread local villages, with beautiful mountains towering above in the background.

It combines of nature tour together with insightful cultural experience.T here are opportunities to visit ancient Buddhist and Bon po villages, high passes, beautiful lakes, isolated Buddhist monasteries, to observe the vast array of endangered wildlife, including Blue sheep, Himalayan Tahr and Snow Leopard.The medicinal plant, Yarchagumba (Coerdiopsis sinensis) a type of wild mushroom is found in abundance in this region.
