It's a great escape from the dust and filth of the city and the pond with it's 7m commemorative pillar is stunning. And that's about it. The variety in plants, flowers and trees is far from impressive. And like at most places in Nepal, maintenance is highly required, but that's the norm in this utterly poor country. To enjoy the...

With a little traffic, take only 1 hour from Kathmandu to here. During our visit, flowers are blooming beautifully. Toilets need an improvement. In 4 hours walking, we saw buzzard, whistling thrush, redstart, turtle-dove, barbet, parakeet, treepie, crow, tit, warbler, bush-robin, sparrow, swallow, white-eye, babbler, and flycatcher.

I went to see the new biodiversity garden which was planted in a collaboration and to celebrate the union between the UK/Nepal. You can see lots of native fauna that are trying to be kept and re-introduced to the landscape. They're is also a wonderful orchid house and colourful terrace.

There are no many natural gardens or places to visit within the Valley and this is unique. The diverse plant species, flowers, prestine nature and walk within the gardens is stunning. Not to miss.

The botanical gardens located about 25 km from Kathmandu, is laid out in a fairly large area and makes for a refreshing walk amidst shady trees and a meandering stream. Needs more maintenance and care of plants and the surroundings, though. The park authorities dont allow plastic bags or toys such as balls to be taken inside, but we could... More

A good picnic spot. Filled with greenery (Duh!), there are also some artificial waterfalls around. There's an entrance ticket as well but its pretty cheap.
