Seems closer to Symplocaceae.

Tried all species of Symplocos but could not get the match !

Santalaceae? Helicia?

Sorry … Could not get the match !

A member of Loranthaceae.
Possibly a species of Macrosolen

Only one Macrosolen is found listed in Which does not match with the description and any Macrosolen image in the net !

I think … may talking of another post of yours on Loranthaceae

I am talking about this image. … you are right, it does not match with any species. It might be turn out to be something new. I have also seen this specimen in Arunachal. I don’t have a specimen though. You should collect a specimen if you can. 

Thank you … I shall do that. Could you please advise the ID ?

Like I said earlier, its a member of Loranthaceae and probably Macrosolen

OK ! That means other than listed in Nepal ? Was it identified Arunachal species?

Yes, it is Loranthaceae only, I too agree with …

I was looking under the wrong genus. Its matching well with Helixanthera odorata. It is reported from Nepal.
