The Neora Valley National Park, located in the catchment of River Neora, is regarded as one of the richest and most diverse biological zones in northeastern India.

Since the Neora Valley National Park lies at the foothills of the Himalayas, it has a rugged and hilly terrain. The natural habitat of the park is still undisturbed by human intervention. To the north of the park, it extends into the forests of Sikkim and Bhutan, and the climatic conditions here vary from tropical to temperate, and sometimes even sub-alpine conditions.

Many streams and rivers flow through the park and help in the irrigation of the vegetation as well as to keep the wildlife alive and thriving.
