This plant is neither Rhinanthus minor (known as 'Yellow-Rattle' in the UK) nor 
R.glaber recordedfrom China.   Neither have records for Nepal nor anywhere in 
the Himalaya proper, as far as I know.
I shall see what I or others can come up with.   These sub-tropical locations 
and associated flora are not familiarterritory for me.....  Hopefully someone 
else can "come to the rescue".   Seems quite distinctive, so someone shouldbe 
able to recognise it.
By the way, two 'Rhinanthus' was included in 'Flora of British India' one a 
synonym for Pedicularis bifida (Scrophulariaceae)the other for Geniospermum 
elongatum (Lamiaceae).

Best Wishes,

Forwarding again for Id assistance please.Some earlier relevant feedback:       
| It was unfortunate that when I went to the spot after a couple of weeks to 
get pictures of the plant there was no trace of any plant .
However, from your hint and comparison of web pictures I guess it could be 
Rhinanthus minor L. (accepted name).
Request experts for opinion.
Thank you. florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2& taxon_id=200021241
