Sharing some pictures for ID shot at Chandragiri Hill Kathmandu on 19 September 2016 at 8200 ft.
Must be some Isodon sp.
Tried to ID but could not come to the conclusion:
My guess as below:
Request for your guidance.
Most difficult part is not a single image in the web! If someone could validate according to the description !
Correct ID as suggested from some expert from Nepal is Isodon scrophularioides (Wall. ex Benth.) Murata (accepted name)  !
To me it does appear close but does not match particularly the Calyx, as per illustration at
http://www.plantillustrations.org/illustration.php?id_illustration=39634&SID=0&mobile=0&code_category_taxon= 
Further you can check with the high resolution specimen at
http://elmer.rbge.org.uk/bgbase/vherb/bgbasevherb.php?cfg=bgbase/vherb/zoom.cfg&filename=E00273722.zip&queryRow=1
I have checked all Isodon/ Rabdosia and looks like only matches with Isodon scrophularioides (Wall. ex Benth.) Murata.

But I cannot say finally if it is same.

Came across another link and submitting for further verification please.
Taxonomic notes on genus Isodon (Nepetoideae, Lamiaceae) from China I: revision of four species

Image From Net.
1 image.
Thanks ... for the information. As far as I remember the infloresecence are much branched in this sp. and sometimes confused with the scrophulariaceae members.
Thank you for your reply. 
I am still confused about the correctness of ID I had guessed as not many image found in the net for comparision, however, looks matching according to the keys in the eflora Nepal.
By the way I am not a doctor but a plant enthusiast!  
Further opinions from all are expected.

Thanks sir, happy to know you are Plant Enthusiast, I really appreciate your devotion.
It  has been verified as Isodon phulchokiensis (Murata) H.Hara by Dr Chunlei from China.
But there is no sufficient keys and images in the net to re verify it. 
I guess we need to amend in the site accordingly.
Yes, it will be done in due course. 
Thanks for the information, I feel, Isodon phulchokiensis (Murata) H.Hara communicated by Dr Chunlei would be correct as I. scrophularoides inflorescence are entirely different as I informed earlier.
Thanks for your effort to identify it.
