This one is difficult to pin. The leaves were bluish and the flowers in a cluster. I think it is close to Corydalis goveniana but am not very certain. Please advise.

To me looks different from images at Corydalis govaniana

Corydalis govaniana is very different, not glaucous, with a large dense leaf rosette at base and flowering stems with only two very small opposite leaves in lower part. The flowers are similar, but the bracts are oblong-acute, pectinate dentate.
This one belongs in the C. moorcroftiana complex, which still awaits a proper revision.

VoF Week :: DV :: 03 AUG 12 – 0119 :: ¿ Corydalis species ? along Hemakund – Ghangaria trail:   3 AUG 12
Hemakund – Ghangaria trail … about 13300 ft
Habitat: mountain slope
Habit: much branched herb, about 1 – 1.5 m high, rising along the slope; flower about 10 – 12 mm long

C meifolia may be

Corydalis filiformis I would say.

Perhaps my ID at must be incorrect.

Yes … Only one of them has to be C. filiformis, and the earlier one (your link) seems more probable because of longer spur, larger sepals and broader leaflets. The plant in this thread has much narrower leaflets, shorter spur and smaller sepals.

Pl. see 1st thread at Corydalis moorcroftiana ? for Magnus Linden’s views.

Thanks … for pointing to the page in eFI site.

Earlier I got confused with the question mark at end of Corydalis moorcroftiana in your comment.
Many thanks for pointing to the ID.
Will revise my notes soon.

Ladakh Plant ID 2 – (SJ:4Aug09) – indiantreepix | Google Groups : 2 images.
here is another one from Ladakh for ID help – seen growing at a distance on a river bed just short of Loma. Sorry about the quality – the best my amateurish camera could capture.  

Could be Corydalis govaniana

Is it possible to send the original image.
It may turn out to be Corydalis moorcroftiana as per FOI
