Abstract: The pristine forest of Lohit valley, about 500 km journey towards east from Arunachal’s capital city Itanagar fall within Indo-Burma Biodiversity Hotspot is mainly characterized by its rich wealth of medicinal plant diversity. This valuable medicinal plant wealth in wilderness is mostly guarded by the traditional wisdom of four ethnic communities inhabited in the valley such as Tai Kamti, Singpho, Mishmi and Chakma. The Tai Khamtis are originally belonging to the Royal Tai family of Southeast Asia and have acquired a high degree of knowledge on herbal medicines in comparison to rest of areas in the valley. The present paper contains 26 species of plants exclusively based on first hand ethnobotanical field reports and have been critically screened out as anti-inflammatory and wound healing agents.
