i.d. of Pangi flowers al141011-a: Another one of the Asteraceae.... I'm quite confused between these..
(even the last one I posted is still unidentified)... but anyway here
goes one more for the floral diversity
Location Pangi, Himachal
Altitude 3000 mts

Habit herb
Habitat wild
Plant height 18-20 inches

Perhaps it is Dendranthema weyrichii
What do you think sir...
on the internet.. there are similar images for this species... Could be Dendranthema weyrichii...
I am confused of its being wild. It is supposed to be a garden plant, native of Japan and sian part of Russia.
Very interesting facts sir, but this was definitely wild... the place where I found it was 1-2 kilometers away from the last Buddhist settlement on a track which led to Zanskar valley (a few days trek)
Does not match with images of Dendranthema weyrichii at http://botany.cz/cs/dendranthema-zawadskii/ and at Wikimedia commons 
It seems like a Dendranthema but not sure if it is weyrichii as the  leaves here seem simple and undivided.
