This robust thistle was shot from near Dak Pathar, during tour to Chakrata..
can this be Cirsium wallichii ?


Looks like C. argyracanthum DC. which is treated as synonym of C. verutum in Flowers of Himal and Nepal Plants but is distinct in white heads (FBI) and treated distinct even by The Plant List.
