A total of 220 plants recorded from this hilly tract, out of which 35 medicinal plants identified. These medicinal plants are used by the local community in curing 53 types of disease and health related problems. This study recorded some plant species viz; Commiphora wightii, Capparis cartilaginea, Sterculia urens, Sarcocostemma acidum, Tinospora cordifolia, having high medicinal values. It was found that Fagonia schweienfurthii (1850.65Density/ha) and Achyranthes aspera var. argentea (1331.17 Density/ha) were most dense medicinal plants of the Hill, and the diversity of medicinal plant were high in mixed vegetation habitat.
