Dear all, 
I recently saw this photograph published in a Nepali newsportal, Setopati.com. It is allegedly taken in Khaptad in the Himalayan region. 
I believe it's a Bistorta species. I would say it could be Bistorta macrophylla, IF NOT Bistorta affnis.

Thanks for accepting my request to join the group, Garg jee.

By the way, I am posting photographs of plants on Twitter and encouraging others also to do the same. I am using #NepalFlora #NepalPlants and #BotanyQuiz hashtags. 

Since I dont know local names and/or scientific names of some plants, sharing on Twitter media helps know the vernacular name at least, and know the ethnobotanical uses of the plants.

If members of this group are on Twitter, please catch up with the tweets @keshuvko. :) 

Regards
