The present study was conducted to document the ethno–medicinal plants and their usage by the Pahari community of Azmatabad village, Thannamandi of District Rajouri in J&K. Documentation is the first step in achieving conservation and sustainable use of medicinal plants on a local, regional, and global scale. The checklist of medical plants acts as baseline data for use by the researchers, policy makers, land managers and common people interested in documentation, conservation, and sustainable use. The altitude is 1982 m above the sea level supporting sub-tropical to temperate vegetation and offering congenial climatic condition favorable for the growth of medical plants. A total of 65 medicinal plant species belonging to 44 (Table-1) families were identified which are used by the local Pahari inhabitants as medicine, they need to be documented for the preservation and conservation.
