This one was growing between rocks near water. One look at the flowers and I thought Scrophularia but could only confirm it once I reached home today afternoon. I found more plants growing lower down at about 3100m too. I think this is Scrophularia calycina. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

Scrophularia calycina
Ilaqa and below
3300-3100m

I agree with your id …
