Photographed along Mussoorie Chakrata Road
A species found relatively at lower altitude (others are found in subalpine or alpine zones) descending up to 1400m in Uttarakhand. If I remember correctly ... have also posted its pics for correct ID (from Chakrata area). Hope he will see and determine his species.
Thanks ... for the post and ... for elaborating..

Check for some Pedicularis species ?
Thank you ... for pointing me in the right direction. It could be Pedicularis bifida, and I photographed it on the same route as ... (his photos on FOI). I look forward to his advice.
I think it matches with images at Pedicularis bifida
Pedicularis bifida is distinguished by it's unlobes leaves. This should be Pedicularis bifida only.

Kailash-Mansarovar Yatra:: Wild flower for ID NSJ-OCT 16/03 : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (3)
Wild flower for ID. Photo taken near Sirkha camp Aug 12, 2016. Altitude around 7500 feet.
May be Pedicularis bifida.
I agree with Dr Singh that this is likely to be Pedicularis bifida.  One always needs to be ultra cautious with such a taxonomically difficult genus as Pedicularis.
But this appears fairly distinctive with, as 'Flowers of Himalaya' states, "distinguished by its entire, not lobed, leaves which are narrow-elliptic with coarse rounded teeth and by its pink flowers... the upper lip with a slender straight beak enlarged below into a curved base 2-3 times as long" Flowers in a lax leafy spike. They give an altitudinal range of 1000-2700m. From Himachal Pradesh to Bhutan.
Stewart noted that in FBI its range was given as from Kashmir to Sikkim (not much access to Bhutan in 19th Century) but he had only seen it in the Mussorie Hills.
There is a line drawing of it in 'Flora Simlensis' but under a synonym of Pedicularis carnosa. Collet found the plant at Shimla and Mushobra.  There is no photo in 'Flowers of the Himalaya'.
I first came across it when shown a pressed specimen made by Narsim, who lived beside the Naryanawamy Ashram in Kumaon (close to the border with Nepal). Narsim arrived here aged 17, from S.India, long before the Ashram was built. I met him in 2000 by which time he was an old man. He had botanised for 50+ years. He lived along what was the old pilgrimage route to Mt. Kailash.  So the location of this plant fits well.

Nice case
====
but what injustice to this pretty flower. in medicine Pedicularis means lice in animal and human hair, skin etc. but the flower is so very pretty.
reminds me of ducks heads. red headed ducks if that's possible in the bird world. but its very pretty flower not a louse for sure
