Codonopsis flowers, Valley of Flowers, Himalayas, India

This plant has some use in traditional medicine and has been reported to be used to cure HIV infection and cancer!!! It is used as a substitute for ginseng and is cultivated for its medicinal properties. I saw it for the first time in the Himalayas in the high altitude Valley of flowers.
