Abstract:  Biodiversity of eastern Himalayas including Sikkim and Darjeeling is well known. Many ethnic groups reside in this beautiful Himalayan region. Although the modern medicinal facilities are available in the urban areas of Darjeeling yet local population of far flung places still prefers to use traditional plant resources. An ethnobotanical study was conducted among the traditional practitioners: Jhankri, Bijuwa and Phedangma. Mostly they rely on locally available plant materials to cure many diseases and disorders. In this paper a total of 41 species of plants as used by traditional practitioners of this area are listed alphabetically by botanical names, followed by family (in parenthesis) and medicinal uses.
