Kindly help me to identify this species. Some say it is Valeriana. I request for the confirmation.
The specimen is from Bhutan. Spruce forest. Above 3500 m.

Appears so. Pl. check comparative images at 

himalayan valerian?

To me appears close.

Agree with …

I anticipate a constant touch with you if you don’t mind.

Also it is recorded in our flora list under Dipsacaceae
