Alpine forests are usually found in Mountainous regions.
Depending on the location and variety of plants, Alpine forests can be found all over the Himalayas at altitudes ranging from 2,900 to 3,500 m or even up to 3800 m above sea level. Sub-alpine, moist alpine scrub, and dry alpine scrub are the three types of forests found in this region.
