It is a member of Asteraceae


It is very close to Vernonia esculenta


Was it cultivated or wild.
If cultivated, pl. check Gymnanthemum amygdalinum (Delile) Sch. Bip. as per comparative images at Vernonieae‎ and as per details at Vernonia
If it is wild, Vernonia extensa is a synonym of Gymnanthemum extensum (Wall. ex DC.) Steetz in checklist of Nepal.
