It is a part of Jaljala area and an ultimate destination for die-hard nature lovers who want to explore the untouched, unseen and unexplored beauty of nature and wildlife along with unique culture and lifestyles of isolated Magars, Chhetris and Chhantyals living in the wild valleys. The trail is filled with varieties of orchids, and faunas like blue sheep, ghoral, serow, Himalayan thar, black bear, pheasant, patridge and endangered species of red panda and cheer pheasant too; along with many rivers, fast glacier streams and majestic Himalayas.
