Medicinal plants constitute major ingredient of Traditional Medicine practiced all over the World. There is an increased awareness, now-a-days, about the efficiency of natural products in the maintenance of health and people, the world over, prefer the medicinal plants for their day to day health needs. This renewed interest in the medicinal plants is primarily for their least side effects, rather side benefits.
North Eastern region of India is known for its rich floristic diversity. It has been estimated that this region harbours around 7,500 of flowering plants which constitutes nearly 40% of the floristic diversity of India currently reported to be 19,200. This region is also known for its unique Medicinal and Aromatic Plants.
People in the Karbi Anglong district of Assam; largely use most of the Medicinal Plants in their day-to-day life either as vegetables, eatables or for healing of common ailments. The hill tribes of this district, who lead a simple life, primarily depend on forest produces. It may be mentioned that the Karbi Anglong is the treasure for canes, bamboos, reeds, orchids, medicinal plants and other flora and fauna unparalleled in luxuriance and varieties. Some people still practice as healers for cure of delicate diseases, fractures and hardly consult a physician.
There are more than thousand of different medicinal plants are available in Kabi Anglong. Among them few are identified and documented, still big parts are unidentified. Karbi Anglong has the prospects to develop as a Health Tourism/ Ayurvedic Tourism/ Herbal Tourism destination and Aromatic Food destination.
