I am pretty sure this is not Vanda alpina. This is either Vanda griffithii or Vanda cristata. I can see three lobes on the front of labellum.

Cant confirm the id from these pics.


Does not look like Vanda griffithii but could be V. cristata.
Some more images!

I am not sure. Alpina has no points at the tip of labellum.
It is better to have fully open flowers.
