Abstract: Some observations on the vegetation and plant-ecology were made on a journey through Zanskar (part of Jammu and Kashmir state). Trees are growing near water-courses on about 3800m also in the dry southern part of Zanskar; the timberline on both sides of the highest ridge of the Himalayas seems to be situated at about 3800-3900m. Crop plants are grown in southern Zanskar on to about 4000m; they need irrigation. The overgrazing led to a vast extension of Artemisia and Astragalus-Acantholimon vegetation units. The 13 places of plant collection, reaching from 2600m to 4700m, are characterized, and a plant list of collected plants with precise locality data is given.
