Location: Gyaneswor, Kathmandu
Date: 30 July 2019
Elevation: 1300 m.

Habitat : Cultivated
Flowers look slight different from Alpinia galanga (L.) Willd., however ,
this is an important ingredient of Thai Cuisine Tom Yam Kung soup and I brought this plant from Thailand

Looks different from other images at Alpinia galanga

Thank you …! I guess so!

It seems to be Alpinia conchigera present wild in NE India and Andaman Islands.
