Never liked trees that much....but Allahu Akbar, this place made me think again. I had no idea cactus could be so beautiful. And the place they are growing......top of the mountain surrounded by the misty clouds, its amazing! And the view from there....of the mountains that lie far ahead & the river Tista flowing down in distant, truly mesmerizing! SubhanAllah!... More

This place has definitely changed over the years. I went a long time back, and surprise, surprise, even stayed. The owner had kindly allowed us to stay there, even though the rooms weren't great, but the very idea of waking up to the open sky, the mountains and the river was a delight that could not be compared. Wonder if... More

Wow-- this definitely surpassed my (low) expectations, and i'm so glad we visited. I've never seen so many cactus---and really beautiful collections. Definitely worth 15-20 min visit-- and also for the views all around. Nice to see so much natural beauty!

Visited this Cactus Nursery which turned out to be a very good decision, as we never thought that there could be so many different types of them! Entry fee is Rs.30/- but its worth it. The view frrom this nursery is also very beautiful.
