While searching for the Saussurea auriculata I was happy to find two other Saussurea species and one of them was S. piptathera. Please advise if I am misidentifying it.

I guess this is a Saussurea but not sure which (may be S. costus).
Saw this along the Ghangaria Hemkund trail, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.
Requested to please ID.


I think more close to images at Saussurea piptathera Edgew.


Thanks … Hoping for experts to comment.
