You will cross several alpine valleys before reaching the broad Yangpachen valley.

Tsurphu Monastery has an annual festival around the time of the Saga Dawa festival on the 9th, 10th, and 11th days of the 4th Tibetan month (around May). There is plenty of free-flowing change (Tibetan barley beer), as well as ritual cham dancing and the unfurling of a great Thangka on the platform across the river from the monastery.

Black yak wool or white canvas tents are Tibetan nomads’ houses with simple lifestyles and little furniture. There is a stove in the center of the tent. This is the typical lifestyle of Tibetan nomads.
