Abstract: Present investigation confined to document traditional folk recipes by using medicinal plants among the inhabitant of Kaghan valley, Northern Pakistan. In this survey 30 different folk recipes were documented in order of recipe preparation, dosage and parts used along with their botanical, local and family name of the plant species. A total of 30 plant species belonging to 19 Angiospermic, 2 Gymnospermic and 1 Pteridophytic family have been reported in this study. Among the angiospermic families, Asteraceae is the dominant one with 5 species followed by Lamiaceae with 4 species and Liliaceae with 2 species. This study can provide some novel recipes commonly practiced among the inhabitants of this region which need systematic and phytochemical proof of these medicinal plants for drug discovery at global perspectives.
