Which one of the following National Parks lies completely in the temperate alpine zone?

  1. Manas National Park
  2. Namdapha National Park
  3. Neora Valley National Park

Answer

The Alpine forests are found all along the Himalaya at altitude ranging between 2500 m to 3500 m.

Namdapha National Park has a very wide altitude variation from 200 m to 4,500 m in the snow-capped mountain. Thus, it does not lie completely in the temperate alpine zone.
