Rosaceae…. could be a species of Sorbus

Did not find any matching to the elevation.

Seems like Stranvaesia nussia

May Be. I have no idea!

Beautiful pictures. 

Looks like Rosaceae to me.
Probably some Prunus or Pyrus spp. Though haven’t come across this spp yet. 

Cotoneaster affinis Lindl. ??

I guess it is matching

I also have no idea what it could be but something about it reminds me of Kalmia. Are any Kalmia found in India?

Kalmia sp syn. Chamaedaphne not listed in Nepal and images 

not matching to any Kalmia in google.

Is this too Cotoneaster affinis Lindl. ?? 

To me also appear close to your images at Cotoneaster affinis
