There are Thar up the west branch , havn't been very far up the east branch.
Chamois are there but not big numbers
It is quite hard to travel along the tops because of the creeks
Good hut with an airstrip

You won't be able to cross at the top , even the deer use the track at the bottom to get into the East branch.

Deer numbers are definitely low. Many parties up there don't see a deer.
Have hunted it in spring, summer, and autumn, didn't see any on the flats. Have seen a few up higher.

Try not to fly in with the same chopper company which is shooting all the deer from that same valley...

You have to be in to win, but it's not the first place I would go. There are places you can go without a permit which have a better chance for fun times AND for big stags.
