As the altitude increases, the temperature decreases. The climate is very cold in the high altitudes. In Jammu and Kashmir and parts of Himalayas temperature drops to -40fiC. Also this region is snow-covered for most part of the year . Very few species of plants can survive in such extreme conditions. Only seasonally flowering trees are found at higher altitudes. Hence, vegetation is scarce in the high altitude of the Himalayas.
