(The recommended itinerary: The coverage from New Tingri to Yupar Town via Parco is 120 kilometers. Going southward along the Ganma Zangbo Valley, you need to take a yak from Yupar to Shajitang mountaineering camp on the northeast foot of Makaru Mountain with an elevation of 3,600 meters. The extensive camp has enough water sources.)
