Abstract: A study on practice of traditional medicine was carried out among the people of Rawain valley, Uttarkashi. The results documented 63 plants to assess their therapeutic significance in managing various diseases in the villages of the valley. Fresh leaves, roots, fruits, bark, stems and some time whole plant are reported to be used for treatment of various ailments. Since, the knowledge of various medicinal plants being used is confined to mostly local healers, it is of utmost importance to document this knowledge for future generation, otherwise it will be lost forever with the death of local healers/knowledgeable person.
