May be a Tetrastigma species. Interesting plants and nice pictures, ....eager to know the correct id.
Keys in Flora of Bhutan at Tetrastigma‎ lead me to Tetrastigma campylocarpum.
But it is not matching, particularly the thorns as per
Keys in Flora of Bhutan at Tetrastigma‎ also lead me to Tetrastigma dubium (Laws.) Planch.
But I think it is not matching as per POWO  GBIF  Catalogue of life
It also lead me to Tetrastigma bracteolatum, but I think it is not matching as per GBIF  Specimen  Specimen  POWO  Research Gate
I also tried with Tetrastigma planicaule (Hook. fil.) Gagnep. as per Keys as per efi thread of Flora of India, but did not match.
Closest I can go is Tetrastigma leucostaphylum (Dennst.) Alston ex Mabb. (which has 3 foliate as well as 5 foliate pedate leaves) only as per details and references herein and as per GBIF Specimen

ID request-280112-PKA1: Came across this Climber en-route Prabalgad (Maharashtra).
Date/Time: 28-01-2012 / 10:45AM
Location: En-route Prabalgad
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Climber.
(Climber was in fruiting stage, flowers not seen).
Family Menispermaceae. Please check species of Cayratia
I think looks different from Cayratia as leaves are not pedately compound.
I think appears close to Tetrastigma leucostaphylum (Dennst.) Alston ex Mabb. as per comparative images at Tetrastigma
