I hope Nepeta elliptica
How about Nepeta podostachys?
Yes … may be right. Lower leaves are appearing distinctly petiolate. The specimens previously associated with N. elliptica can now be found belonging to N. elliptica (all leaves sessile), N. subincisa (with serrate or incised leaves; lowers leaves petiolate), N. paulsenii (lower leaves petiolate, leaves linear-elliptic or elliptic, subentire to crenate-serrate) and N. podostachys (lower leaves petiolate, oblong-ovate, crenate). N. podostachys seems to be the best match.
Thanks a lot for the efforts …,
May I know about the distribution of this plant in India? Fl. Pakistan reports this from Afghanistan and Pakistan only.

I first saw it at 3000m and then again at 3200m and beyond. I think this is Dracocephalum heterophyllum, but I am not very certain. Please advise.
Dracocephala heterophyllum—White Dragonhead
Above Triund, HP 3000m and above 03-04 September 2016
Does not match with images at Dracocephalum heterophyllum Benth.
Thank you … I now think that the plant I photographed was very likely Nepeta podostachys. I went to Ilaqa yesterday and found the plant again and took some photos. The leaf-stalks are clearly visible and following … comments on … post here, N. podostachys is very likely. Please advise.
Yes, I also feel it is close to … post as given in your link.
