Rapidly the climate in Tibet became drier and harsher, similar to the present. Lakes diminished and became saltier, while peat bogs and marshes declined. Forests shifted toward steppe, and steppeland shifted toward desert steppe.

In glacial times, the forests receded from mountain slopes; sometimes sparse spruce and fir forests would survive in sheltered valleys, but much of the landscape was treeless, shrubby grassland and steppe.
