  • Sikkim is famous for orchids and here you will get a glimpse of them. However it is quite small, essentially a small greenhouse.  more »

  • The flower exhibition centre is one of the main attractions in Gangtok,SIKKIM. Various kinds of flowers along with some rare kinds are being exhibited here, as if NATURE is trying to pacify human minds with its vibrant colours. This place is enriched with eternal bliss; thus it's always been listed among the top 10 places in the Gangtok city tour.
  • I love flowers and nature but this was a bit underwhelming. Basically what you would see in any Western garden store/nursery but for 20 rupees. I wouldn't go out of my to see it, although the area around (up the hill) is very nice and quiet. Good place to walk back to town with nice views.
  • Tourists can take a hike from MG Marg, or take a cab till the ridge park. It has a good collection of orchids and rare flowers. The management can still do better with the upkeep of the property. The parks should be made popular to locals as well
  • Loved the place a lot. The Ridge is a flat wonderful stretch of road just above the Gangtok Town. It would be about 20 minutes walk from MG Marg main market. The Ridge is flanked on one side by the White Hall as well as the Chief Minister's Residence, and on the other side by a wonderful gate with pagoda like top. The White Hall is a two storey building of British architecture built in 1932 in memory of the first British Political Officer Sir James Claude White. It once used to be a venue of important functions, but today it lies more as a historical building with not much activities. The Ridge Park runs along The Ridge road and is full of flowering plants and shrubs. There is a traditional Sikkimeses style Gazebo here where visitors can rest and soak in the ambience around. There are benches as well in the park. At one end and below the Ridge Park is the Flower Exhibition Center which holds the annual Orchid show. Inside the area is not very large but it has amazing collections of flowers of many different types, If you are a flower lover, then this is the place for you. But the best time is between March to June when the Orchids are in full bloom and put on display.
  • Perfect place for flower lovers. Large variety of Himalayan flower plants and shrubs is consecrated here. Place is designed such a way that colorful flowers decorate it along with some small fountains and bridges constructed over an small artificial stream.
