I think this one is Ephedra gerardiana ??
Family: Ephedraceae,
Location: Nubra Valley, Ladakh

I think matches with images at Ephedra gerardiana


This Ephedra species was shot near Badrinath at an altitude of 3400m.
It was growing on a rock crevice on almost vertical slope.


Ephedra species in efi


Appears to be Ephedra gerardiana Wall. ex Stapf as per comparative images in efi at Ephedra


Thank you … Now taking it as Ephedra gerardiana.
