Hakgala Botanic Gardens, Nuwara Eliya

4.0
#4 of 15 in Parks in Nuwara Eliya
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 .

  • Nice and best beautiful garden in nuwaraeliya. 50 rupees for local. Need 2-3 hours. Well maintain. lots of nice places to get photos. Must go if you visit nuwaraeliya.  more »
  • Our guide recommended the garden as a replacement for the overpriced entrance from the "worlds end". 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
