• The Puruogangri Ice Field: The Puruogangri, the largest modern ice field in the Tibetan Plateau with an area of over 400 km2 in total, is in the inner plateau although it is very difficult to reach,

• Dagze Lake: It is one of many inland lakes in Tibet, with a present area of 260 km² (100 square miles). In glacial times, the region was considerably wetter, and lakes were correspondingly much larger.

• Nagqu Active Volcano: In fact, there is something about trekking up an active volcano that feels fundamentally human. Nothing survives at the top of a volcano. No vegetation; even birds avoid flying by them. Often, the only signs of life near the fuming sulphur pits and rivers of lava, are the humans staring right into them.
