Hakgala Botanic Gardens, Nuwara Eliya Reviews

  • Had a lovely variety of flowers with a very picturesque environment. Have many areas to cover within the botanical gardens. This is open until 6 pm. Visitors are avoided after 6 due to wild animals entering the gardens.

  • Went on end on April. Perfect Full of flowers . Beautiful .. Plastics are totally prohibited in any form including plastic water bottles. That is a perfect decision. If you want to take water, you have to take school water bottles.

  • Hakgala is the second most famous botanical garden in Sri Lanka. Got so many verities of flora, most of them are indigenous to Sri Lanka. Best time to visit is on April, May season where the flowers are blooming on most of plants. Inside got small shops so u can buy bottled water and snacks. And also there are toilets also. Please make sure not to pollute the garden by throwing waste. Staff is very strict about it.

  • It is a flower garden which located in hill country. The best season to go there is spring in April. The rose garden is fantastic.
