Yes I think … is right. Aster albescence, described as Microglossa albescence in FBI. Strangely The Plant List considers both as correct names, not even citing the basionym in latter.

Saw these near Ghangaria on the way to VOF Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.
Identified as Aster albescens based on efi pics. Kindly validate.


To me also appear close to images at Aster albescens (DC.) Wall. ex Hand.-Mazz. 

Correct ID … Elevation would be added advantage for ID. Mine was shot at 9000 ft. efi thread


Thanks … for validating. These may have been clicked at about 9800-9900 ft, just near Ghangaria helipad.
