I will not go with Saussurea piptathera because of the fact that this plant has a characteristic black outline around the leaf margin which is missing in Saussurea piptathera

This should be Saussurea piptathera only, as Pankaj says. Saussurea
piptathera is characterized by oblong leaves which are sharply
toothed, hairless above, cottony below, with stem-clasping base.
Flower-heads 1/2 inch across, in a crowded dense corymb.
