Site description Essa área abrange uma grande extensão da Serra da Mantiqueira ao longo da divisa entre São Paulo e Minas Gerais, estendendo- se de Campos do Jordão até Queluz (SP) e Passa Quatro (MG), na divisa com o Rio de Janeiro. A área praticamente interliga a região de São Francisco Xavier/Monte Verde (SP/MG02) ao Parque Nacional de Itatiaia (RJ/MG01) através das encostas e cumes da Serra da Mantiqueira. Seus limites são formados pelos parques estaduais justapostos de Campos do Jordão e Mananciais de Campos do Jordão e pela porção da APA da Serra da Mantiqueira que se estende ao longo da divisa São Paulo–Minas Gerais. A Serra da Mantiqueira ainda possui extensas áreas de floresta, concentrando as maiores manchas de mata com araucária (Araucaria angustifolia) do Estado de São Paulo. Desde o Vale do Paraíba até o alto das montanhas existe um gradiente altitudinal bem definido, com flo- restas latifoliadas nas encostas da serra, matas com araucárias e Podocarpus lamberti nos vales de altitudes intermediárias e florestas alto-montanas ricas em bromélias entre 1.700–2.000 m. Sobre os espigões da serra há campos de altitude. Nas zonas mais elevadas, a temperatura média anual é de apenas 13°C, ocorrendo temperaturas abaixo de zero no inverno.
