National Botanical Gardens
National Botanical Gardens information
The verdant botanical gardens are a quiet and peaceful spot for a walk or picnic, except on Friday and Saturday when the place is overrun with schoolkids. The visitor centre has some good exhibits on Nepal’s flora and in the middle is the decorative Coronation Pond with its 7m commemorative pillar. The cactus house, orchid house and tropical house took some damage in the earthquake and repairs are ongoing.
