King’s crown (Rhodiola) in the Himalayas

Every plant in high altitude regions is beautiful and unique. One such plant is the King’s Crown (Rhodiola species). These grow wild in the mountains and are used in traditional medicines to cure high blood pressure, tuberculosis and even cancer ( I did not get proof of that!). The rose like flower at the top of each stalk probably led to it being named King’s Crown.
