Rock Garden

Gardens in Namchi

Around 500m before the Samdruptse turn as you're heading away from Namchi, some stairs lead steeply down through this attractive garden on a slightly confusing series of stairway-paths that takes around 20 minutes each way. While there's plenty of pretty foliage and a few curious natural formations, the main reason to come here seems to be an extra justification for riding the Samdruptse cable car.

Note that the ropeway's lower station, at the bottom of the garden, has no ticket office as most people come down then back up (tickets are return).
