What can it be? 

No idea at all. May be Fern sp. ?

It’s Gesneriaceae or one of those things – I just can’t quite remember the name of this easily recognisable spermatophyte genus, sorry.

Can’t find those places on a map – sounds like Sikkim, but please always tell us the State, as I keep saying!

… has suggested it as Hoya linearis and looks like correct. https://garden.org/plants/view/114258/Hoya-Hoya-linearis/

Hoya!  Yes, that’s right – I keep seeing it but never remember the name.
