This is not R alpina
I was also in doubt whether capitata or purpurea. Panka Ji may be right in this being purpurea

Yes it should be R. purpurea, perhaps purple colour is confusing for Tanay. R. alpina has purple flowers and corolla tube much longer whereas both R. purpurea and R. capitata have mauve or light blue flowers and with shorter corolla tube. R. capitata has numerous flowers in the spike.

Thank you Sir Ji 
The colour was surely a region for confusion

Sir another confusion
this plant was shot somewhere from Mussoorie area
This also looks like R purpurea as per the attachment supplement to flowers of himalaya
Thanks

Balkar ji
But see the flower colour and long corolla tube. It should be R. alpina, if I am not wrong
