Some more flower photographs from the trip to ladakh in july 2008. Wondering if this flower can identified.
This one was growing near sarchu
The first photograph is a detail from the second

Looks like some Polygonaceae. Probably Koenigia.

Could u plz post a closeup of the leaf and inflorescence?

Regards,
Ritesh.

Hi,
 
This is Aconogonon tortuosum var. tibetanum (Polygonaceae) frequently seen in glacial moraines in ladakh
