Escape the city hubbub and retreat to Garden of Dreams, a peaceful garden complex renowned for its scenic pavilions. Also known as the “Garden of Six Seasons," it was built in 1920 for Field Marshall Kaiser Sumsher Rana and was abandoned after his death in the 1960s. Today, restored with help of the Austrian government, it remains a landmark of Kathmandu and a popular spot for a relaxing stroll. Roaming the lush gardens, you can admire Edwardian-style inspired fountains, birdhouses, gazebos, and other picturesque decorations.

  • A kind of a park next to Thamel. You have to pay entrance as a foreigner (200 rs, so less than 2 dollar). Being restored since 2022, not all ready yet, end 2022. Cafe still closed e.g. Nice to relax.....  more

  • A place that shows the power of restoration. Garden of Dreams is the symbol of proper communication and teamwork. The place is full of natural beauty and if you are looking for a simple day off from your busy schedule, this is a place to go for! You can rest, take a lot of excellent pictures amongst the nature! A must visit!
  • One of the beautiful garden in Kathmandu valley. It's located just in the middle of heart of capital nearby to Narayanhiti Palace. The garden provides the perfect peaceful place in Capitol which is favoured by most love couples. You can enjoy the food while spending your time in the garden. This garden has got it's own historical memory and you need to have a ticket 5o enter the garden.
  • Its a beautiful and peaceful place with lots of squirrel roaming around dancing and cracking nuts that attract every visitors there. Even you get beautiful place to take rest from your day to day busy schedule. You can get the beautiful architect with lots of eye catching designs. Even the small ponds with beautiful lotus and other small flowers. Even you can get the beautiful scene for clicking photos and videos. You can also take this place for fliming .
  • The Garden of Dreams, a neo classical historical garden, is situated in the midst of Kathmandu city, Nepal. The Garden's design has much in common with formal European gardens: paved perimeter paths, punctuated by pavilions, trellises, and various planting areas, surrounded by a sunken flower garden with a large pond at its center. It is an architectural landscape that encourages the visitor to stroll around and discover the Garden's treasures from many different vantage points. I visited this place with my brother and I was quite impressed with the availability of plants and natural beauty. However, the place is sometimes crowed and the entry fee is also quite expensive considering the facility available.
  • Best destination in kathmandu valley to cheer up with friends, family or your loved one. Very well managed, clean and tidy place where you can see green all around. For a moment you will feel like you are not in the capital city. Just I don't recommend visiting in public holidays because of huge crowd on those days.
