Set among the great Himalayan mountains, this park is right on the border between two of the world's eight major bioregions, the Palearctic and the Indomalayan. The remarkable altitude differences in the park (1400-6000 m) results in a diverse flora from subtropical forests to alpine and glacial flora. The national park is home to different species of goat, bear, leopard and pheasants.
