The Khorog botanical garden is a relatively small one compared to many we have seen in our travels around the world but it is nice anyway. Really looks more like a garden for the fancy housing next to it, not a lot was in bloom...More

The Botanical garden must have been great sometime in the past but now is totally neglected incl. the buildings except for the presidential mansion. At one spot tall trees form a circle, planted by the first presidents of the region after independence from the Soviet...More

I was fortunate to have visited this garden during autumn when the trees were changing colours - everything was beautiful. The walk around the garden is very pleasant, refreshing and calming. It definitely warrants a visit when you are in Khorog.

It isn't really a botanical garden anymore because 95% of the grounds are not maintained, it is rather a pleasant, quiet piece of forest and orchards. It has great potential. For the views climb to the ridge, then to the antennas, then a little bit...More

It seems very nice, but we were at a conference right on the grounds and didn't really get a chance to walk around and see it well. It is outside central Khorog, so you will need to take transportation to get there.

This is a nice place for a walk with great views and you can see how the leaders of the country waste money on hardly used buildings.
