Hakgala Botanic Gardens, Nuwara Eliya

(4/5 based on 400 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.

  • this place is amazing. quit and beautiful. attract local and foreign tourists. mostly crowded at april and in holidays.
  • Its way better than the peradeniya botanical garden.. tje landscapes are breath taking.. the weather is good too...
  • One of the Main Botanical Garden in sri Lanka with Special Whether experience. Because this belongs to the cool climate in Sri Lanka- closer to Nuwaraeliya
  • Try to make it till the rocky mountains in the north. The walk through the old trees is very calming. You may be able to see the monkeys too. Many parts are manicured but thankfully, a large portion retains its beautiful wildness
  • An amazing place to spend the time. Cool and serene environment make it even better.
