A close  up of flower/inflorescence would help.

Ms. Gunjan Sud says this could be Blumea laciniata. But she would need
more pics to confirm. She is doing her PhD on Asteraceae of Himachal
Pradesh.

I think Blumea laciniata has laciniate or somewhat lyrate leaves and larger heads. I am uploading mine from Delhi separately.

Thanx Pankaj for sending the photos to an expert I will be attaching
some more photos for clear identity of the leaves to me it doesn't
appears to be laciniata but any other species of Blumea

Sorry doc, she is not an expert as you are, but as she had been
working specifically on this group on higher altitudes, I thought she
might be of help. I have seen her collection of Blumea too. Lets hope
to find the true identity of this soon.
Regards
Pankaj

Yes Amit ji
Blumea aromatica is the logical choice: Leaves not divided, involucre glandular hairy, with recurved tips
