Came across this small beautiful pink coloured flowers near Chatadu.
Date/Time: 29-09-2010 / 12:30PM
Location: near Chatadu Village (Spiti region), 11200ft

Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Herb

Nice pictures ... I guess, it is Epilobium species of Onagraceae.

Oenothera rosea please

Epilobium laxum.

Yes ... is right. Not Oenothera.
Oenothera rosea no doubt

No ..., not Oenothera Rather Epilobium.

I too feel this to be Epilobium sp.
I think Epilobium wallichianum also has distribution in this region..

Epilobium sp.

Perhaps Epilobium brevifolium

Seems more like Epilobium cilliatum...

I wonder this American plant which although widespread in Asia has ever been reported from India, even Flora of China does not mention it.
In China the plant may ascend to altitudes of 2000 m, so it is equally doubtful whether it can ascend to around 3500 m in Western Himalayas.
The upper leaves of E. ciliatum are lanceolate and narrower. Here they are clearly ovate.
For me, as such, E. brevifolium of Fl. Simlensis (closely related to E. royleanum) is the closest match


 Epilobium royleanum Hausskn. ... (family: Onagraceae)

... about 11000 - 12000 ft
These pictures are just so very beautiful - I am falling in love with them! :-)
 
I think more closer to images and details at Epilobium brevifolium subsp. brevifolium rather than those at Epilobium royleanum Hausskn.   
This is also as per keys at Flora of China and FOC illustrations:
http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=94567&flora_id=2
Thanks very much ... for pointing to the correct ID.
Will do the correction accordingly in flickr notes.

Thanks, ... I think matches with images at Epilobium laxum
I think close to Epilobium laxum rather than Epilobium royleanum Hausskn.  as per
But I do not find any distribution in Nepal.
So it may be some other species. 
On further perusal of images, I think may be Epilobium royleanum Hausskn. only.
I think more closer to images and details at Epilobium brevifolium subsp. brevifolium rather than those at Epilobium royleanum Hausskn.   
Which one  it is matching ...?

Image of Thingam ji at Epilobium royleanum in FOI is more close to images and details in references at  Epilobium brevifolium subsp. brevifolium rather than those at Epilobium royleanum Hausskn.

You are right. The broad leaves also agree with Epilobium brevifolium subsp. brevifolium. Corrections have been made:
