Boehmeria clidemioides ??
Sharing some pictures for identification validation shot at Kakani, Nepal on 28 July 2016 at 6000 ft.

Seems close but stem is different. Pl. check with other species as per Flora of Nepal

I  did check beforehand and for me it looked like Boehmeria clidemioides. Now, need verification.

Boehmeria species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 

I had already checked and it looks closer.

Boehmeria clidemioides Miq. var. diffusa (Wedd). Hand.-Mazz ??

To me appears close to images at Boehmeria clidemioides Miq. as per comparative images at Boehmeria

I am not good at Boehmeria. Belongs to this genus but I have no idea to the species

3rd image is different and is of Boehmeria clidemioides Miq. (see the shape of the leaf and apex).

MS,Oct,2021/83 Urtica sp. ? for id.: 2 images.

I think it is a Boehmeria species, as per comparative images herein.
Pl. check with Boehmeria clidemioides Miq. as per keys in another post at Boehmeria species- Darlawn, Mizoram
I think close.

Agreed with B. clidemioides or its subsp.
