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).

However, from your hint and comparison of web pictures I guess it could be Rhinanthus minor L. (accepted name). Request experts for opinion.
