At an altitude of 4,000 meters above sea level, the never-ending Tibetan grasslands rise majestically. This is the home of the nomads and the yaks who are nestled between the rolling hills that cover the massive area of the grasslands.
Trees and bushes do not grow up here anymore. Forests are also non-existant at this altitude. The only regular inhabitants of these areas are yaks, nomads, sheep, small birds, the Himalayan marmot, vultures and eagles - as well as the mythic Tibetan highland cat. The latter, by the way, is a master of camouflage. You are far more likely to encounter the Yeti rather than a highland cat!
