Himalayan Wildlife in India

The highest mountain ranges in the world and geologically speaking, the youngest, the Himalayas offer some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. The western and eastern sectors of these lofty mountains have distinct differences in vegetation and wildlife.

Vegetation also varies with altitude and ranges from the tropical and sub tropical forests of the foothills, the temperate forests and alpine meadows of the higher reaches, to the high altitude deserts in Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.

With diverse habitats, animal life is varied too.
