The Himalayas are the “treasure-house" or the natural wealth particularly of the medicinal herbs that are the basis of Ayurvedic studies. Gandhamadan, Drounagiri, Sumeru-parvat etc. are some of the famous peaks of the Central Himalayas which store some of the Medicinal herbs of value like Sanjeevani, Vishalakarni, Ajruha, Padma, SomLata, Astavarga etc. Besides the medicinal plants, the Himalayan mountains are also an excellent source of several mineral elements and the only source of the ‘musk’ ("KASTOORI”) obtained from “musk-deer” found in this region. The present study of the Garhwal region of the Central Himalaya is, therefore, of considerable importance.
