The biome of mountain forests typically resides at altitudes from 1,000 to 3,500 meters above sea level, but depending on geographic location, climate, and geology, it may vary.

The climate in mountain forests is characterized by cool summers and cold winters. The forests receive a substantial amount of precipitation, both in the form of snow and rain. Weather conditions in mountain forests can be extremely unpredictable and rapidly changing.

These types of forests could be found on the slopes of any ancient mountains. During the Cretaceous period, they might have occupied vast areas on the young Cordilleras, Andes, mountains of Southeast Asia, and other places.
