  • One of the main attractions of Meghalaya is the abundance of flora and fauna. Meghalaya's subtropical forest ecoregion is home to several species of birds, animals, reptiles and amphibians. The Nokrek National Park in Meghalaya is a habitat to several of these species and is situated in the Garo Hills district 2 kms from Tura Peak. Covering an expansive area, the reserve is one of the least disturbed forest tracts of the sub-Himalayan ranges. It is the first biosphere reserve of its kind in the northeast region. The Garo Hills contain many natural limestone caves, the most famous among which is the Siju Cave. It is positioned very near to the Nophak Lake near the Simsang River game reserve. The cave is miles long and full of water. Commonly observed animals in the park are Capped Langur, Clouded Leopard, Leopard Cat, Fishing-Cat, Golden Cat, Pangolin, Wild Buffalo, Python, Elephant, Serow and Tiger.
