Just returned from Gangtok.
 
I couldn't take a picture but still I feel our esteemed members may be able to guess the name of the tree from the information I got.
 
This tree was huge with leaves a little bit like M Champaka and flowers are white.
 
The local name is Chilauni (which is Nepali for itching).
 
Would be grateful for id (if possible from this information).
 
regards,
 
rakesh
