VoF Week: Herpetospermum pedunculosum from the trek Govindghat to Ghangriya:  
Herpetospermum pedunculosum from the trek Govindghat to Ghangriya, a herbaceous climber on shrubs and trees there.
Family: Cucurbitaceae.
Since Govind Ghat is at an altitude of 6000 ft (around 1800 m) and Ghangariya nearly 10000 ft (3100 m), a rather large altitudinal range and trek of nearly 12 km or so, it would be useful if approximate altitude is mentioned in all uploads to allow proper comments and documentation.
Agreed Sir this was at about 4 kms distance from Govindghat may be about 2200-2400 mts

Seen this climber enroute Shilt Camp site at GHNPat altitude of approx. 2400m.
Bot. name: Herpetospermum pedunculosum?? (Pl. validate the ID)..
Family: Cucurbitaceae
YES in my opinion.
Please also check in eFI page
Leaves shown in picture 2766, 2771 are of Fagopyrum species and not of Herpetospermum pedunculosum.
Few weeks back I also photographed this species at about 2500-2600m altitude.
Yes, I agree with you as well as ... this is Herpetospermum pedunculosum..
