Rock and Ice

Very high elevation areas in the Himalaya (from Kashmir and Ladakh to Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh) that are ice-covered and rocky are included in this ecoregion. Few lifeforms survive in these harsh environments and areas of permafrost. But species from neighbouring ecoregions or that move through these areas may occasionally occur.
