Pumaqangtang means "prairie of lovers" in the Tibetan language. After years of modernization, the 5,375-meter-high grassland now has a six-grade primary school with 108 students and nine teachers. Mobile communication became available in 2007 and a border police station was set up four years ago.

The local economy heavily relies on raising livestock. According to the local government, the average annual income stood at 9,700 yuan (about $1,421) in 2015 and is expected to reach 10,000 yuan by the end of 2016.
