On further scrutiny and as per details and references herein, I feel it may be Spiraea vaccinifolia D.Don only.


I saw the Keys available in Flora of Nepal- Online Flora (as per this Spiraea micrantha and Spiraea bella are very close).
As per these keys and detailed description, it is Spiraea micrantha
