I think this is Myriactis wightii
Outer florets start white and probably fade to pink.
I think yes

Wild Herb captured on 13/8/10 during the trek from Ghangaria (around 11,000 ft.) to Hemkunt Sahib (around 14000 ft.).
Myriactis nepalensis, the ligules some times turn purplish with age.
Myriactis nepalensis indeed

Thanks, ... I think it is not there in Concise Flowers of Himalayas by Oleg Polunin & Adam Stainton. However, flowers look different (though may be same species as pointed out by ...) in earlier thread on Myriactis nepalensis- may be due to different time of photographs


The species is common in Himalayas and has white ray florets, but may be some times purplish
