Dr Rawat is correct that this is *Oxyria digyna* (unless of course in the 
future this 'species' is subdivided into various taxa).
'Flowers of Himalaya'  give its distribution from Pakistan to SW China and 
N.Temperate zone common on open slopes & grazing grounds.

Stewart found it to be very common in wet soils at high altitudes and 
useful as greens from 2700-5500m.

'Flora of Lahaul-Spiti' says common along water source, in meadows and 
glacial moraine.

We even have it in the British mountains, where it is known as 'Mountain 
Sorrel' also in damp rocky places esp. beside streams.
