We had seen this flower way back in 2006 in the Valley of Flowers, and had been lying unidentified till now.
Now it has been identified as Impatiens meeboldii 
  http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Meebold%27s%20Balsam.html
  http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=250071529
All the aspects of Impatiens meeboldii which I could find, agree with our pictures, including nodding club-shaped seed-pods, pinkish white flowers, and the nearly straight spur.
   Cheers
   Tabish

Thanks, Tabish ji, for finally identifying it.
I think similar other plants are also lying unidentified from other posters.
They may pl. check it & resurface them with correct Id.

If Vivekananthan et al are right, your plant is not I. meeboldii - in FoI I. meeboldii is described as species with very small flowers and also much shorter.
I still have no idea what it is however.
There were several similar pictures of white flowered Impatiens with less or more straight spur, all similar enough to be the same mysterious species.
