Number of yaks have crossed Khunjerav freeze river. Yak shifted from Perpak khunjerav to village in the season of winter and summer season yaks survived at khunjerav top or other pasture.
The wild yak has a dense undercoat of soft, close-matted hair which is covered by generally dark brown to black outer hair. Its long, shaggy coat reaches almost to the ground. The wild yak can weigh up to 1000 kg (2200 lb) with a shoulder height of over 2 m (6.5′). It occurs in treeless uplands, including plains, hills, and mountains, from as low as 3200 m (10,500′) up to the limit of vegetation at about 5400 m (18,000′). It stays in high areas with permanent snow during the warmer months of August and September, and spends the rest of the year at lower elevations. The wild yak grazes on grasses, herbs and lichens. Ordinarily it gathers in groups of 10 – 30 or more, but it may occasionally be observed in large groups of 100 – 200. Photo of Akber Ullah
