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. Make Hakgala Botanic Gardens a centerpiece of your Nuwara Eliya vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Nuwara Eliya driving holiday planner.
