We enjoyed our short walk at the Kalimpong Cactus Nursery. Did not know there were so many different types. A local guide would have been helpful.

Its a small place with lots of different kinds of cactuses.There is an entry fee of 10 INR per person but worth a visit.Do not try to pluck any flowers as they will fine you if you do so.

Just magnificent was this nursery, probably renamed Pine View Nursery of Mrs Pradhan which is their individual collection over 3-4 decades +. What a wide collection of cactus based nursery, size / shape wise..just marvellous. Hats off to the curator and their team who have done a fantastic job to maintain this nursery so well in a place like Gangtok.... More
