Hakgala Botanic Gardens, Nuwara Eliya Reviews

  • After all these years and numerous visits, the park still feels fresh. And the cool windy environment, spacious area and the flora and fauna can catch your mind and soul. The park seems little less maintained. But the sanitary and other options have improved. Now the park has a reasonably priced buggy drive throughout the park for you and your team. Little parking available but there are guys to charge you with a ticket even-though you have parked along the road 500m from park.

  • Nice view. Cheap entrance fee. Beautiful flowers, bushes and variety of plants. To travelling inside there is a cart service that better to book early. You can feel the smell of flowers in some areas. Navigation boards every where, also the maps. Inside there is a cafeteria and a plant shop. Pleasant feeling in cool environment. Will not let you bring polymer items (that will trough away)to inside.

  • The place is beautiful though not all the flowers are in full bloom when we visited the botanical garden. They have different areas for different kinds of plants so you can rent a buggy car to go around the area. It's so amazing as well to see those trees that have lived probably more than centuries ago. I bet the place is more wonderful to see during the flower season.

  • Botanical garden. They have different areas for different kinds of plant. Pleasant feeling in cool environment. Several areas seems little less maintained. Specially parking its space also not enough because of so many people visit here per day

  • A beautiful botanical gardens. It was nice to walk around enjoying the view. I would recommend hiring the golf cart for 1000 Rs if you dont feel like walking, especially if it is too hot. I especially liked the rose garden and the Arboretum. We also stumbled across some monkeys.
