VOF Week 280812_DS_03: Though the shots are of very poor quality, I hope my expert friends will be able to identify this.
Can it be some species of Balsam?
On the trail to VOF on 14 August '12.
Lamium album
Somehow overlooked Sir Ji... this is closer to Stachys sericea and is not Lamium album at all...
I think this should be Stachys melissifolia
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Bee%20Leaf%20Woundwort.html
Here is a picture from Flowers of the Himalaya: A Supplement
Yes not Lamium, perhaps the result of pressure of seeing so many photographs quickly. Luckily we have people like ... and you to not let the wrong ID go.

VoF Week :: DV :: 01 AUG 12 - 1221 :: Nepeta ¿ erecta ? along Govind Ghat - Ghangaria trail: 1 AUG 12
Govind Ghat - Ghangaria trail ... about 7800 ft

Habitat: mountain slope
Habit: herb, about 1 - 1.5 m high; flower about 8 - 10 mm across
To me flower colour looks different, flowers smaller (could you tell the flower length?), and leaves more sessile than Nepeta erecta. Some more views of leaf attachment of lower and upper leaves please??.
Looks like some Stachys Sp.
I cannot recollect strongly, ... the flower could be about 10 mm across, about 20 mm long.
Let me see if I can fetch some other views of this plant.
Will post them if I get some new views.
Stachys sericea I guess
Agree with Stachys sericea
To me it does not look like Stachys sericea. Would be happy to consider it similar to plant uploaded by ... and identified as Stachys melissifolia.
To me this also looks like Stachys melissifolia.
The other plant is Stachys emodi Hedge, which has stems covered with long silky hairs - see ... plant here:
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Silky%20Woundwort.html
The naming seems to be terribly messed up:
Stachys
sericea Wall. ex Benth is treated as as synonym of Stachys emodi Hedge (accepted name) at GRIN
At TPL,
Stachys emodi Hedge is treated as an illegitimate synonym of Stachys melissifolia Benth. (accepted name)
At TPL, Stachys sericea Wall. ex Benth is treated as an illegitimate synonym of Stachys melissifolia Benth. (accepted)
At TPL, Stachys sericea Cav. is accepted name

PS: This plant is wrongly labelled as Nepeta erecta in K.R. Keshava Murthy's book, probably the source of ... preliminary thinking.
You can see Nepeta erecta in this link:
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Erect%20Catmint.html
and in the attached picture from FOH.
Yes ... Nomenclature of this genus seems to be confusing. Let us see if we have some clear view in future.

Lamiaceae ..??

Appears so.
I think Stachys sp.

Stachys species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 
Stachys melissifolia Benth. (accepted name) ???
Yes, ... Close to Stachys melissifolia as per images at
Lamiaceae (Incl. Verbenaceae) Fortnight: Stachys sp. from Chakrata- NS May 30/30
Annotated checklist of flowering plants of Nepal and Books of Nepal listed as Stachys melissaefolia Benth. whereas google and other websites showing Stachys melissifolia Benth.  Why is such difference ? 

..., I think names containing double / triple vowels are revised to have single vowel. Let us wait for better / correct understanding.
I think there are mistakes in spelling sometimes in publications. But I think we have to follow what ever is published initially. I do not know if I am correct. 
For the correct spelling you may use WWW.IPNI.ORG which lists this name as Stachys melissifolia although in original description it is labelled as Stachys melissaefolia.
Thanks, ...  That means I was wrong. 
As per Code 'mellisaefolia' is correctable to 'mellisifolia'
Thank you all for clarifying the complications of ID !
Stachys melissifolia Benth.
Nepali Name : मिगिना  Miginaa
