Himalayan Cypress, Bhutan Cypress • Nepali: राज सल्लो Raj sallo;
The Himalayan cypress is an evergreen conifer tree species is found on limestone terrain in the western Himalaya from 300–2,800 metres (980–9,200 ft). Information on its distribution further east is conflicting. It may occur in Sichuan, China and in Vietnam. However, according “Conifers of Vietnam“, only cultivated trees exist in Vietnam, and the “Flora of China” reports it from Tibet, but not from Sichuan.
(From Wikipedia on 10.12.13)
The plant is burnt as an incense[51, 158]. The leaves are used. Wood – moderately hard, very durable. Used for general construction[51, 61, 158, 272].

If it is wild it should be C.torulosa which is the only wild species in Uttarakhand. C.sempervirens is a mediterranean species [http://www.conifers.org/cu/Cupressus_sempervirens.php]

Cypressus torulosa/ABMAR17 : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (5)
This tree is good 40 feet tall and stands nearby where I live. It looks solid and has a serrated bark. For long I thought it to be the Himalayan Juniper but looking closely today I think it is a Cypress. I found a fallen twig and couple of dry mature fruits and brought them home to photograph. Please advise.

Cupressus torulosa D. Don in Lamb ??
Looks different as per images at Cupressus torulosa
Pl. check Juniperus
In that case these must be unripe female cones as per Conifers (Female cones globose or elliptic, grouped on very short stalks, 10-20 mm across, green or purple when young, later turning dark brown, composed of 6-8(10) scales, with a small central depression and a small, triangular, reflexed mucro).
