The Kalpalata Lotus is one of the regional specialities that was introduced alongside Sumeru. These cliff-dwelling flowers were used to ascend Dori previously, but with the release of Genshin Impact 3.2, they are now also used to level the five-star Dendro Archon, Nahida.
Considering she can use her camera skill to grab items from a distance, she’s actually well designed to gather these flowers herself, since she doesn’t have to bother with climbing cliffs to reach them. In this Kalpalata Lotus guide, I’ll show you where to find the flowers in the Sumeru region and how many you’ll need to ascend Nahida.
Genshin Impact Kalpalata Lotus: Where to farm

Unlike the Nilotpala Lotus that you need to ascend Tighnari, the Kalpalata Lotus is actually found on cliffs rather than in water. This Sumeru speciality is spread all across the region, but the best place to find it is to the west of Sumeru City and near Vanarana, though you can also find some in Avidya Forest, the Apam Woods, and in the ravine south of Vimara Village. This one really is scattered all around.
You can find every exact location on the official Genshin Impact map, but just generally checking cliffs near water sources should net you a few. If you want a super speedy farm rather than just to collect them gradually, this video from KyoStinV has a decent one.
You’ll need 168 altogether to ascend Nahida, but sadly like Kokomi‘s Sango Pearls, there just aren’t that many Kalpalata Lotus around. If you were to scour all of Sumeru you’d still only get 59, which means you’ll need three complete farms if you want Nahida at max level. It’s worth remembering that region specialities such as ascension flowers take two real world days to spawn, meaning your Nahida farm may take a little time if you’re intent on levelling her fully.
