I am enclosing some pictures of Impatiens for ID.
Date: 26 JULY, 2014
Location: Dolakha District, East Nepal
Altitude : 7000 ft.

Seems to be Impatiens scabrida commom in Nepal

I can’t agree with this opinion. I am sure this is I. falcifer or someting very close. Shape of lateral petals is like in I. falcifer pictures. Besides, I. scabrida has big and wide lower sepal, lacking in this plant.

I. falcifer for sure!
