This looks to be Primula denticulata

I think this must be a form of Primula capitata. It is very wet and bedraggled in the monsoon!. The only subspecies mentioned for Nepal is the type subspecies capitata which is not well known and is rarely seen in cultivation. This seems to answer the description of that subspecies.

Could you finally decide from among the two suggestions?

Looks like P. denticulata but could not confirm it as images are not so clear !

Does not match with images at
Pl. check with other suggestion.

Yes, difficult as images are not good !

Pl. check with Primula capitata

I could not decide.
