They are small ungulates with a goat-like or antelope-like appearance. Gorals are often found on rocky hillsides at high elevations. Gorals typically weigh 25–40 kilograms and are 80–130 centimetres in length, with short, backward-facing horns. Coloration differs between species and individuals, but generally ranges from light gray to dark red-brown, with lighter patches on the chest, throat, and underside, and a dark stripe down the spine. They have woolly undercoats covered by longer, coarser hair, which helps to protect them in the cold areas where they are often found.
