Same plant on 31 March 2017!
Would it help to ID ?

Probably a Lamiaceae member. Difficult to reach to any conclusion. 

Pl. also check comparative images at Lonicera 

I have already checked. Cannot decide.
What about flower images ?
Looks like a Rubiaceae member. Fruit bears calyx at the top.

Finally, I guess the ID is Lonicera macrantha (D. Don) Spreng.
Please validate.

Enclosing details about Lonicera found in Kathmandu valley for your reference please !

Thanks, ... 
Pl. try to check these in net. 
Enclosing some links I am not sure it is the same.

Yes appears close as per images at
http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=119577&flora_id=2
Is it Lonicera or other Sp.?
I guess it is matching to the ID I have suggested earlier. Out of 3 Lonicera found in the Kathmandu Valley it only looks like matching the best for this twiner.

Thanks, ..., for additional images. 
... has confirmed it as L. macrantha. Can I have your opinion please ?

It resembles to L. macrantha as seen in a herbarium specimen:

I guess Lonicera macrantha (D.Don) Spreng. if elevation is 1500-2100 m.

Lonicera japonica 

Probably Lonicera macrantha

I still think it is L. macrantha.
