Take a relaxing stroll through the immaculately maintained hilly terrain of Hakgala Botanic Gardens. Of the 10,000 species planted here, the large collection of various orchids and roses remains the most notable. Large crowds arrive here on the weekends, making for good people-watching, while weekdays offer some peace and quiet. Walking through the hilly landscape can get tiring; rent a caddy for an easier way to tour the grounds.

At first we thought, a garden with trees and flowers, but after about 30 minutes we did a round in it, we were taught something better. In the heart of the park is a beautifully landscaped jungle landscape with small waterfalls, paths and bridges. The Stone Wood (or something like that) was also perfect for sitting down and relaxing. On our day there were almost no people and we were through after the 2 hours with all the different forests. I also had my EReader with me and enjoyed half an hour of reading in the middle of it
Best place to calm your mind. Large number of trees are there including the flowers. You can walk about 4 to 5 km in the garden. Better stay whole day enjoying the nature!
This is a Very Good Place to calm down sit. i really mean it its a Very Cool Place to explore Flowers and variety of plants. people used to come here.
