Can it be, by any chance a species of Gnaphalium, Asteraceae

Asteraceae for sure. Could be Anaphalis or Gnaphalium. I would have gone for Anaphalis but seeing Nidhan ji’s comment I am getting doubtful. Perhaps it may help if some one may list species of these two genera reported from that area.

i think this may be species of Anaphilis
