Abstract:  Indigenous practices provide invaluable knowledge and aid in making best use of natural resources. In the modern days of technological advancement, this knowledge is often forgotten or neglected. In Nepal, negligible efforts have been undertaken in a systematic way to understand the scientific basis of this knowledge. It is recommended that the documentation of Indigenous Technical Knowledge (ITK) should be included in the curricula of environment and sustainable development as a cross-cutting issue. Understanding of ITK, their advantages and disadvantages, will help further strengthen the existing knowledge of professionals in this field. In the paper, ITK from water resource management, soil fertility management, indigenous knowledge on biodiversity and forest management, Indigenous Knowledge on pest management, biofencing, agricultural tools and implements, and traditional beliefs are documented primarily from Kavre, Dhading, Kaski, Baglung and Syanga districts in Nepal.
