The temperate forest of oak, chestnut, maple, birch, alder, magnolia and silver fir dominates between 5000; and 13000.35 species of rhododendrons grow in temperate and alpine regions, their flowering from May to August colours hillsides.

    Animals:

    Amongst the mammals of Sikkim are the rare Snow Leopard, Himalayan Black Bear, Red panda, Musk Deer and Blue Sheep.
