A fun walk for nature lovers. There were many rhododendron and some ponds to walk around. It’s not especially interesting. We did not spend much time there.

For me the main attraction of Kandy other than just roaming the city. Nicely designed and lots of shade, beautiful botanics everywhere you look. Go to the pond also and experience the monkeys bathing

One of the few green spot for picnicking near Thimphu. The park is a small garden which is rather designed for local Bhutanese.

You can find lots of collections of flowers and plants. It is beautifully built and well organized. If you are into flowers and nature then you would love it.

The gardens are good but not at all maintained properly so that you won't be interested in this place more than a few minutes. The entry fee is not justified at all.
