Meghalaya subtropical forests

WWF Abstract

The Khasi and Garo Hills rise to over 5906 feet (1,800 m), and the wet forests that spread over them are home to an amazing variety of life. Scientists consider this ecoregion to be one of the most species-rich on the Indian subcontinent for mammals, birds, and plants. The mature forests have large trees that several species of hornbills depend on for nesting. Throughout the forests, trees are draped in climbing vines and orchids. Beneath is a dense undergrowth of bamboo and other canes that shelters a variety of wildlife.
