Abstract: Bhotias of Dharchula sub-division in Kumaon, Uttaranchal in North India have been living in isolation for centuries. They have had strong bond with the nature. They have traditionally been dependent on nature for healthcare, as they did not have access to the modern medicinal facilites until about 1960s. No serious attempts were made to document the traditional phytomedicines used by Bhotias of Dharchula areas in the past. Present attempt is the ethnomedicinal survey to document the traditional phytomedicines used by them.
