Sharing some pictures for ID. Flowers not bloomed.
Pictures were shot at Jomsom Nepal on 22 April 2013 at 8800 ft.
Early to say anything, to me it looks like any Launaea sp.
I guess it matches with Launaea secunda (C. B. Clarke) Hook. f. which is only one found at an altitude of 1700-3400 m. out of 4 Launaea found in Nepal.

Himalayan species with characteristic nearly leafless stem and heads in one sided racemes. Although heads are not open but characteristic features are clearly shown.
