Yes, these images do seem to fit Rosa webbiana - a common xerophytic rose in Ladakh. 

BUT the common shrub on hilly slopes of Harwan is probably Rosa nanothamnus - which Stewart
recognised as a separate species from R.webbiana - he gave R.webbiana var. microphylla as a synonym).
R.nanothamnus is currently an Accepted Name, see:
