These mountain ranges are known for their diverse flora and fauna, natural and serene beauty and for meditation spots with religious significance. Bhamarkot which lies in the middle of the Nayapul to Ghorepani walking trail provides an ideal spot to enjoy the mountain range. Spring is a perfect time to enjoy the flowering of Rhododendron trees and for birdwatchers to watch the Danphe and other birds. The trails continue to Ghorepani via Maate, Hampal, Jalajal and Mohoredanda.

These routes and walking trails are alternatives within the Annapuma circuit and attract tourist due to the preservation of natural habitat and untouched by commercial road networks. Key attractions for tourist in this area are 1,200 ha forest that touches Parbat, Myagdi and Kaski, the stone quarry of Maate, White Rhododendron (Cheemal) that blossom in the month of June/July, the massive highland plains of Jaljala situated at 2,800m above sea level and the high vantage location at Mohare Danda. Yet another location which has religious significance and popular for pilgrims is the Hampal Kalanzar areas
