Himalayan subtropical broadleaf forests

WWF Abstract

To explore this ecoregion, you could begin at the bottom of the world’s deepest river gorge, the Kali Gandaki, and scramble up through mostly undisturbed forest. You’d then cross flatlands and foothills, moving through fields, pastures and other cleared land. And finally you’d climb the steep Outer Himalayas, where the forest canopy once again closes overhead. From bottom to top, the steep slopes of this ecoregion preserve forests and the animals that live there.
