If possible please suggest ID.

May be Androsace globulifera

The Plant may be Androsace muscoidea

Link of pictures of these species from Androsace World – A Picture Gallery of The Genus Androsace :
A. globifera
A. muscoidea

Androsace globifera as suggested by …,  A. musoides is restricted to Kashmir

Link of pictures of these species from Androsace World – A Picture Gallery of The Genus Androsace :
A. globifera
A. muscoidea
Pursuing these, I find images by Rawat ji more closer to A. muscoidea.
Also POWO and Checklist of Nepal gives distribution in the area.

There is no sp. as such Androsace globulifera !
But it is close to Androsace globifera Duby : Wikimedia Commons

Images at Androsace World – A Picture Gallery of The Genus Androsace are more reliable:

  1. globifera
  2. muscoidea

Pl. check.

Thank you … ! What about the correct ID ?

I have given my opinion earlier.
