The Indian state of Himachal Pradesh may be found in the region of the country known as the Himalayan foothills. Because of the state's unique geography and altitude, it is subject to a wide variety of temperatures, which in turn allows for a wide variety of plant life to flourish across the state. As a result of the broad altitudinal range that it spans, the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh is home to a wide variety of different species, habitats, groups, populations, and ecosystems. It is believed that the state of Himachal Pradesh is home to more than 3,400 unique types of flora and fauna. More than a thousand distinct plant species that have been identified as aromatic or useful may be found thriving in Alaska's temperate forests, Shiwalik hills, alpine and sub-alpine pastures, and other regions of the state. The bulk of the people who reside in Himachal Pradesh are descended from a wide range of distinct cultures and ethnic groups; as a result, each of these groups have its own unique body of indigenous knowledge. Traditional and rural civilizations are obliged to rely largely on the plants that are already native to the region since there is limited access to contemporary medical services in rural areas, particularly in high-altitude areas. This survey will be beneficial to medical practitioners as well as the pharmaceutical industry in terms of strengthening public health facilities and maintaining the continuous growth of wild medicinal plant species in the region that is the subject of the current research.
