Judging by the place it was found and altitude (and of course the photo)... could it be Micromeria biflora...

This plant with tiny pink flowers is found commonly here. I wonder if it's the English Lavender.
English Lavender (Micromeria biflora)

Yes, this is Micromeria biflora...
Yes Micromeria biflora, but I wonder how lavender name can be associated with this. Lemon African savory, Lemon savory and Lemon scented thyme go well. English lavender is Lavandula angustifolia
Thank you ..., I saw the name associated with Micromeria biflora on FOI page and used it. I will remember to use one of the other common names you have given. Is it lemon scented, edible?
Lavender means at least two things:
first lavender scent of lavendula and
lavender color as in fabric and accessories color.  
Lavender is ashade of violet, with pinkish or a skyblue overtones.
Ask any lady.
Queen mother of ewng; land was very fond of wearing lavender colored dresses, sign of old age.
Spiritually, lavender shades show up in meditation when concentrating on Sahasrar Charkra, on lucky days when such visualisation can be gotten to.
===
Back to this case, perhaps the colloquial name crept up because of the violet/lavender color of the flowers. (sans the scent of course) .
I am guessing of course, but the chances of this scenario being possible is very high.
My first question is answered. The plant has a beautiful lemon scent when crushed between fingers. I was tempted to taste it but decided against it. Thought I will check with you first, if it was edible like the regular thyme?
The flowers and leaves are used as a tea[272]. A powder of the dried flowers and leaves is used as a flavouring in lentil soups and curries[272]. Information is based on Manandhar. N. P. Plants and People of Nepal and quoted by Plant for Future
http://www.pfaf.org/user/Plant.aspx?LatinName=Micromeria+biflora
I found a few herbs growing by the roadsides and brought one sprig home to look at closely. Here are the results. This time I did not get the lemony scent by crushing the leaves.

Nice capture of Micromeria biflora...
Ashwini just had a case : [efloraofindia:202418] Lavender/ABOCT06
english lavender
and we had some discussion on origin of the lavender epitaph for this plant, its surmised that the taste and smell (of lemony family of smell ) must be the reason!!!
anyway that question is still open, if any aroma- specialist knows the histroy we would like to know.
thanks for these pictures ..., lovely and complete.

  Distribution and elevation agrees, can't be sure though.
Isn't it Micromeria biflora....

... is absolutely right! This is Micromeria biflora indeed!
Yes it is ! Thank you all.

Can it be variety hispida of Micromeria biflora ?
You may be right but I am unable to decide as not many images in the web.

PLANT FOR ID 94 SMP JUN 09 Manali : 24 posts by 10 authors. Attachments (1)
A herb seen in Manali.
Flowers larger than the ones posted earlier (Thymus linearis)

Looks like a Lindernia species, probably Lindernia crustacea
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Brittle%20False%20Pimpernel.html  

The margin of the leaves of my specimen do not appear to be toothed. Rest of the features are matching.

Funny, why should be the sps name crustacea?
this is the group of animals with 5 pairs of walking lages, included in the phylum arthropodaa
... the epithet krus-TA-see-a -- from the Latin crusta, meaning hard (or brittle) shell or rind, referring to the capsule.
Reference: Flora of Australia Online :: http://www.anbg.gov.au/abrs/online-resources/flora/stddisplay.xsql?pnid=7175
Can it be Lancea tibetica? of Scrophulariaceae 

the plant from Manali is definitely not Lancea tibetica, not being close.  Also, one would be very surprised if this species were found
around Manali as it is typically found in the borderlands of Tibet in damp places and grazing grounds. I have seen this e.g. in Zangskar. Also its altitudinal range (according to 'Flowers of the Himalaya') is 3000-4800m, so coming across it c. 2200m (or so) would represent a major extension of the previously
known range.
Most likey Ajuga bracteosa. I hope flowers are 10-12 mm long.

this plant does not match Ajuga bracteosa - not close.  According to 'The Plant List' this is not a valid name but I currently do not know what Ajuga bracteosa Wallich ex Benth. should named as.  I do not have the time to check further what this might be.  Did not immediately recognise it nor have come across it around Manali myself.  As you know, it is much easier (and quicker) to tell what something is not, rather than what it is!
Not still convinced....

Thanks for not getting convinced. Yes the leaves don't seem to be opposite. Euphrasia is another possibility but perhaps no Indian species to match.

Appears to be some Lamiaceae member. Pl. check with comparative images at Lamiaceae

may I recommend on future occasions, you take many more images per plant specimen you wish identified. Taking just one or two general images which do not reveal characteristic/diagnostic characteristics often make it much more difficult and time-consuming for those attempting to identify said images - at times it is impossible.  I suggest you consult my 'Flowers of the NW Himalaya' website, which has many relevant sections which should answer any questions you may have: https://sites.google.com/a/shpa.org.uk/fowh/.  I draw your attention to the entry for Impatiens glandulifera as an example of what can be done with a modestly-priced digital camera: https://sites.google.com/a/shpa.org.uk/fowh/impatiens-1 - I do not expect you to suddenly jump from taking just a single image to many but you should aim to head in this direction.  As you can see from the numerous images of 'Himalayan Balsam' they provide so much more information and in greater detail.  The more close-ups one can inspect the greater understanding one gets of a plant.  I hope you can see the value of this.  With practise one can learn to rapidly take close-up images in focus.  The problem with you image is that it shows little or no detail of floral parts or foliage.  There may be a member of eFI who recognises the plant with confidence but at least two of the suggestions given below are nowhere near to the correct identification.  IF you can post more quality images each time you ask for an identification, this would greatly benefit the eFI data-base.
Sir please check Micromeria biflora

... is more closer to the ID than others. I too feel that it may be Micromeria biflora. I have seen M. biflora reaching up to 2700 m in Munsyari, Pithoragarh area.
Thank you ... for pointing towards correct direction.
Micromeria biflora should be right id..
