“Pleasant place to visit”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This garden is definitely worth a visit. The flowers are beautiful and we took lots of great photographs. I don't think that it's an experience that you will ever forget. This place surely makes you forget that yourself and really takes you to a different world. There are lovely paths and quiet spaces. Really worth the trip!

“Great”

My mum has taken my brother and I here and we loved it. It is great to take a relaxed stroll around and admire all the beautiful plants.

“A very nice place for a morning visit”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The orchid house is not as nice as the one in the botanical garden in singapore.The garden is well orgnized and has a nice selection of troipical plants and its worth the visit.

“Hakgala Botanical Gardens- Nuwara Eliya”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Must see place in Nuwara Eliya . Approx. 10km away from Nuwara town . You can have picnic lunch, walking in side the park . There are beautiful flowers, plants and ferns here. Some old tea plantation and old Cyprus trees also there . Can go around the park in your own vehicle too.

“Huge!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Gardens were huge and interesting with many varieties of plants. But very few toilet facilities and places to get drinks.
