Answer
Tropical rainforest,
India’s best rainforests are found in the northeastern region which is not as affected by the human population as the Western Ghats. The northeastern rainforests stretch from northern Assam to Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, and part of Arunachal Pradesh. Most of this region is at an altitude of around 900 meters. It is home to evergreen and semi-evergreen rainforests, moist deciduous monsoon forests, riparian forests, swamps, and grasslands. You can find evergreen rainforests in the Assam Valley, and the foothills of the eastern Himalayas. Regions like the lower parts of the Naga Hills, Meghalaya, Mizoram, and Manipur receive heavy rainfall making it possible for the evergreen forests to thrive here. The whole of northeast India is known for the moist sal (Shorea robusta) monsoon forests.  Upper Assam is home to the Joydihing wildlife sanctuary which consists of the Joypur reserve forest, Dirak reserve forest, and Dihing reserve forest. A number of wild species like Rhesus Macaque, Assamese Macaque, and slow Loris, capped Langurs, pig-tailed Macaque, stam-tailed Macaque, and Hoolock Gibbons are found in this area. This rainforest also has a huge elephant population.
