Northeastern Himalayan subalpine conifer forests

WWF Abstract

The Tibetan Plateau is so high, vast, cold, and snowy that it's often called the "Roof of the World" and "Land of Snows." Many rivers wind from the plateau and down through the Himalayan Mountains. High hills, surrounding river valleys, are covered with dense conifer forests. Steep terrain thatÂ’s nearly impossible to reach, as well as heavy monsoons, have kept the human population low here, so many rare mammals such as the red panda, takin, and musk deer find refuge in these forests.
