The Eastern Himalayan region

The Eastern Himalayan region refers to the region lying between 82.70°E and 100.31°E longitude and 21.95°N to 29.45°N latitude, covering a total area of 524,190 sq.km. The region extends from the Kaligandaki Valley in central Nepal to northwest Yunnan in China, also encompassing Bhutan, the northeastern states and north Bengal hills in India, southeastern Tibet, and parts of northern Myanmar. 

The Eastern Himalayas with its diverse biodiversity provides a wide range of ecosystem services (provisioning, regulating, cultural, supporting), and is thus a useful area for studying the relationship between loss of biodiversity and loss of ecosystem services.
