Well worth the entrance to fee to have some peace and quiet (although, honestly, KTM is not at all as hectic as all that, compared to any Indian city!!), and just be. Pretty flowers, nice grassy areas and benches to sit on, (good toilets too), a real little haven. The café is mega expensive though, so unless you want to blow a week's budget on lunch then I'd come here before or after eating in Thamel.
There's also a little 'museum' that shows fascinating 'before and after' photos of how the garden used to be after it had fallen into horrific neglect, makes it even more special that it's so gorgeous now!
Came here twice we liked it so much.
