I agree that this is Strobilanthes nutans (Nees) T. Anderson

All white !!!

Yes indeed !

looked at your earlier submission in Oct 2018, validated by John  Wood.that case does NOT show the prominent hairs that this current plant shows. I wonder if you could enlarge your previous case and see them, and if you can, please show us also.

Hairs inside corolla? It is there! I have checked it enlarging the image. May be effect of rain last year ?

Strobilanthes nutans : 3 very high resolution images.
I believe this is Strobilanthes nutans.
The location is south of Phulchowki peak on the Khanigaun trail at elevation 2300m.
This looks like the other two from Nepal but different location

Yes !

I confirm that all three images are Strobilanthes nutans

Some of the problems in trying to subdivide the genus Strobilanthes are discussed in the context of highlighting the distinctive features of S. nutans including the distinctive cone‐like inflorescence, the white flowers and the subglobose incurved anthers. The introduction and cultivation of S. nutans as well as the possibilities of the introduction of other hardy species of Strobilanthes are discussed. )
