Oleandra wallichii (Hook.) C.Presl ?? 

Sori and Rhizome characters are required 

Not perfect image. 

May also be juvinile Coniogramme or Diplazium javanicum or something else.

Thank you … but looks different both species suggested.

The well developed spores and rhizome could gave some clues. It is very young….could be similar species as suggested by …

But as of young leaf I will go with Oleandra wallichii (Hook.) C. Presl, if it is epiphytic than  Coniogramme or Diplazium, as it is common at that altitude in Central Nepal.
