This one is again new for me.. was shot from Gori Valley, near Chokori... id help requested.. may be ... have found the identification..
I am sure this is one of bicornuta group - note very long and narrow lobes of lateral petals. It could be I. bicornuta, described as having "Flowers deep pink or purplish with a pale greenish lower sepal, pink spotted in the throat". I don't have any description or picture of I. harae also belonging to this group and also reported from Uttarakhand
Impatiens are difficult to identify in herbarium and are vary variable in size too! So many species (probably rapdly) have evolved in the Himalaya and Western Gats!

I tried my best, but no one of known for me species match this one.
My knowledge on Himalayan Impatiens is still not good enough
A friend of mine identified it on my Flickr account as Impatiens bicolor. Can you please validate sir?
May be Impatiens bicornuta 
Thank you sir.
