Cooler than rainforests, higher than 3,000 feet above sea level


Cloud forests are usually found in the tropical or subtropical regions such as South Africa, Indonesia and South America. They are also found in temperate regions such as Japan and Pakistan. The clouds cover up to the middle level of these forests and persist there. The forests are dark due to low infiltration of light and the vegetation predominantly comprises ferns, orchids and mosses besides trees such as pine and oak. Cloud forests have a high level of biodiversity, most of which is threatened due to unsustainable activities of humans.
