Keywords: Ethno-Botanical Studies, Mastuj, Chitral Valley.

This study was carried in Mastuj valley; it is based on the results of ethno-botanical study of some plants in Mastuj valley. My research study contains 20 plants belonging to 14 families including, 1 monocot, 1 gymnosperm and 18 dicots. Family Alliaceae contain (1spp) F. Salicaceae (1 spp) F. Asteraceac (3 Spp) F. Poaceae (1 spp) F. Papilionaceae (2 spp) ,F.Cucurbitaceae (1 spp) ,F.Mimosaceae (1 spp),F.Solanaceae (2 spp) ,F.Polygonaceae (1 spp),F.Capparidaceae (1 spp) ,F.Lamiaceae (3 spp) ,F.Ephidraceae (1 spp), F.Apiaceae (1 spp) and F.Papaveraceae (1 spp). The ethno-botanical study show that about 19 spp were used as a fodder ,16 as a medicinal ,5 for fire wood ,4 vegetable ,4 ornamental ,2 timber production ,1 plant is used in basketry ,1 plant is a source of building material ,1 used in musical instrument ,2 plant are source of paint production ,1 specie is used for paper production and 1 for soap production .11 plants are cultivated and 9 are wild plants.
