Gurez valley represents the northernmost remote area of Kashmir, India. The mountainous terrain of the valley is characterized by lofty mountains and long flat grasslands loaded with plant species richness. Four species of vascular plants unreported from the valley are discussed. These taxa have their major distribution in the alpine grasslands which act as summer grazing grounds for the livestock of the pastoral nomads.
