Within the monument, there are mostly submontane rainforests, and evergreen montane forests (a.k.a. cloud forests), submontane, semi deciduous seasonal forests, and in the highest altitudes, shrubby subparamo vegetation is common. The climate is high altitude tropical, with heavy annual rainfall (1,00 to 1,500 mm) and a short dry season between January and March.
