This is a rare type of rolling plateau in the world where are many grasslands, hills and hillocks, dense temperate forests, flowering colorful carpeted ground, lake religious shrines and temples and shepherds' huts etc. Over 260 species of birds, yellow throated marten, marmot, porcupine, Himalayan black bear, wild boar, barking deer, Himalayan Thar (Ghoral), common langur, wolf, red monkey and occasionally the snow leopard etc are found in this park. The nice view of the Far Western border Himalayas, garlands of mountains in the horizon, river valleys around the plateau can be seen from the view point (3300m).

During the winter, the snow covers the plateau and it last until spring. It can be the real ski world for the ski lovers. There are more than 50 gentle hills and hillocks everywhere in the plateau. On the other hand, during the late spring we can see the colorful flower ground like a carpet. Many people from different parts of Western Nepal come here to celebrate the festival in spring and summer. In the summer time cattle from surrounding villages are carried here and the shepherds set their temporary settlement with their cattle for about 2 months.
