At a distance of less than 1 km from Horsley Hills Bus Station, Kalyan is a 150 years old Eucalyptus tree situated inside Van Vihar park at the center of Horsley Hills, opposite to Haritha Resort Complex. It is one of the prime places to visit in Horsley Hills.

This is probably the only tree in India that is called with a name. The tree was planted in 1859 by Horsleys, then collector of the region. This is very large tree with a height of 40 meters and circumference is about 4.7 meters.

The tree is hidden behind an old forest bungalow and is well protected with several tall Eucalyptus and other trees all around.
