I do not have as much evidence for this as I would have liked to have. By the time I had found it on my Indrahar trek, the rain was steadier and lenses getting constantly wet. I hope we can gather some evidence from these photos. I thought with short beaks and growing at about 3800m, these qualify as P. roylei. Please advise.

Thanks, … Yes, appears close as per images & illustration at
Pangi id al010911a: This was a total fiasco…. lost a few photos due to an error in deleting fuzzy photos from the memory card.. hence the only photo of the leaves is an attempt to recover from the fuzzy flower photo.. Although am sure it would not be easy to id on the basis of leaves… just a chance that some of our experienced guides would not forget a beautiful flower…
Altitude 4500 mts
Height 12 inches
I think close to images at Pedicularis roylei Maxim.
I agree with P. roylei Maxim.
