The Yilhun Lhatso Nature Reserve (190 sq km),extending from the lakeshore as far as the jagged snow peaks of the Trola range to the south, is a natural habitat for 176 species of wild animals,including the red deer cervus albirostris,the snow-leopard, the argali, the red fox and various birds of prey. The flora of the reserve include distinctive azaleas, dragon spruce(Picea asperata),cypresses and the snow lotus སྤྱང་དུག་པ changdukpa (Sasssurea laniceps ) .

The Nomads of these upper valleys supplement their income by collecting caterpillar fungus for Chinese medicinal consumption.
