Looks like Sanguisorba minor

If so it is interesting, it was not growing in Kashmir or even Ladakh when I explored there between 1969 to 1975 but last time in in 2012, i found it growing profusely on mountain slopes above Cheshma Shahi in Srinagar.
In fact it was first reported from Indian only in 2012

I think yes.

To me it looks different from Sanguisorba minor as per images at POWO.

Poterium sanguisorba subsp. sanguisorba !
I guess there are many leaf variations … !

Here inflorescence appears to be axillary and not terminal.

This is Artemisia hedinii.
