I am hoping you have another picture of the gill surface… if not then please examine them next time… because if they are false gills then it belongs to the Cantharellus sp also known as chanterelles…. they’re considered as edible and tasty… 🙂

Sorry, I have no more images.

to me it looks like Cantharellus cibarius

There is much more information in German
but I don’t know if the trees under which this grows normally, an be fopund in Nepal, and if these trees were to be found in the surroundings.
Principally, one needs much more information to identify a mushroom, just the location name and the date is not enough.
I think, Indian experts should better be consulted.



Found some more images.
