The low mountain forest area is known as a source of biodiversity because it has an area with natural ecosystems that are relatively still intact and has a rich biodiversity and a high level of endemism. The study was conducted to determine the biodiversity found in the mountain forests under Kamojang. The methods used are qualitative and quantitative data collection, vegetation data collection using plot paths, fauna data with exploration (renaissance survey), edafis and climatic data by purposive sampling. Research shows as many as 10 species of vegetation at pole and tree level, 15 species of seedlings and understorey, and 10 species of sapling level. Lower mountain forest shows as many as 18 species of animals with a composition of 14 species of aves, 2 species of mammals, 2 species of reptiles. The land in the Kamojang lower mountain forest includes andosols with 3 horizons namely O, A, and B which tend to be fertile. Temperatures in the lower mountain forests range from 18.5oc-21oc with 93% relative humidity.
