Maybe it's the wrong time of year, but I was somewhat underwhelmed by this place. Not much was in bloom and it was full of young couples posing for romantic photos or giggling groups with selfie-sticks. It's pleasant enough with some lovely old trees and...More

At this time of the year there was not many flowers. Lot of rubbish next to the way... Not worth the long way there.

I have come here a few times, mainly for birdwatching. However the botanical gardens are a good place if you want to see butterflies too. Surrounded by the lovely forests in this area, it is well worth including on a walk around the place.

This might Take around 1 Hour if traffic is good. I suggest you to go there by motorbike. you can go on Cycling too but its too long way. but this place is popular for cycling around its hill after reaching there.
