Flora and Fauna


Vast climatic variations of Arunachal Pradesh have resulted in the existence of almost all types of timber wealth ranging from the tropical teak like species of the foothills jungles, to the conifers of the high mountains. Arunachal Pradesh is famous for rare species of orchids, which are found in all types of forests, altitudinal ranges, and rainfall conditions. The many unspoilt tree-clad slopes contain tigers, leopards, elephants, deers, bears and apes. The Mithun, or ‘bos frontalis’ exists both in wild and semi-domesticated form.
