... reminds of Neuracanthus (sphaerostachys) ... however, the leaves here are different.

I think Neuracanthus is not a Himalayan genus. It is a member of lamiaceae, possibly a fruiting Phlomis bracteosa

Jarusalem sage is Phlomis fruticosa a cultivated plant. Although flowers would be conclusive, but leaves look like P. bracteosa.

I agree with Dr. Gurcharan ji. As per Polunin and Stainton description and picture, matches well with Phlomis bracteosa.
