Sharing some pictures of Impatiens insignis DC. (accepted name) shot at Shankharapur Sankhu Nepal on 28 September 2013 at  5300 ft.

Looks very similar to old drawing in Wallich, N., Plantae Asiaticae Rariores, vol. 2 (1831)
Location: Raniban, Balaju, Kathandu, Nepal
Altitude: 4400 ft.
Date: 31 August 2013

I think you are right.
Flowers look like in old drawing
Inflorescences should be many flowered and stems with kind of wings (?).
I will be busy in next several weeks (field work, conference, some break without internet connection).
I will be available in the end of September for more serious determination.

It looks like in this old plate, and this time with some small details, which were impossible to see in your earlier posts :-).
