Hakgala Botanic Gardens, Nuwara Eliya

(3.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Nuwara Eliya trip itinerary planner makes visiting Hakgala Botanic Gardens and other Nuwara Eliya attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
