Abstract: This paper discusses the ethnobotanical knowledge of the three ethnic groups, viz. Sharchogpa, Zalakha speaking people and the Bhutanese of Tibetan origin, that inhabit the wildlife sanctuary. Of the 165 ethnobotanical species used by the communities, 67 are used for treating different diseases while 98 are used for woodcrafts, handicraft, vegetables, fodder, fibres, dying clothes and making tea, etc. Ericaceae with 16 species was found to be the most used plant family. Ophiocordyceps sinensis [Berk.] Sacc., was found next most useful to locals as the main source of cash income for the upland dwellers.
