In Tibetan Buddhism the Trinity symbolizes Three Emptiness (Body, Speech and Mind)theoretically and functions in subduing evil spirits practically. The mountains have been inspiring awe all the time and preserved so well that one may find what it was here hundreds of years ago. True, it is home to some 100 species of animals among its spurs, cliffs, galciers, lakes, streams, valleys, gorges, flowering alpine meadows and majestic virgin forests.
Joseph F. Rock,a famous American botanist and explorer, described in the National Geographic Magazine his two visits to these peaks in 1928.To quote a few lines of the description from a National Geographic Magazine in July 1931 is:
Shenrizig(another spelling of Chengrezigs) resembles a huge white throne, such as Living Buddhas use when meditating---a worthy seat for a Tibetan deity!...
In a cloudless sky before me rose the peerless pyramid of Jambeyang(another spelling of Jampeyon),the finest mountain my eyes ever beheld....
It also prevented me from securing better photographs of Mount Chanadorje(another spelling of Changna Dorjee),for it persistently refused to unveil its hoaring head...
