Subtropical and alpine forests, spread over 337 square kilometers, harbour endemic and endangered wildlife such as clouded leopards, flying squirrel, palm civet, Himalayan black bear, Indian porcupine, Indian pangolin and elephants. The valley is also home to a rare kind of bamboo called Pleioblastus Simone that only grows here. Pange, Pam, Pamluk and Tale rivers flow through this valley creating stunning landscapes.
