Owner description: The Garden of Dreams, a neo classical historical garden, is situated in the midst of Kathmandu city, Nepal. The Garden's design has much in common with formal European gardens: paved perimeter paths, punctuated by pavilions, trellises, and various planting areas, surrounded by a sunken flower garden with a large pond at its center. It is an architectural landscape that encourages the visitor to stroll around and discover the Garden's treasures from many different vantage points.

Garden of Dreams is just steps away from crazy bustling Thamel. I wouldn't call it spectacular or amazing, but it's really nice and peaceful. In busy Kathmandu it's almost like an oasis of greenery and elegance. You could have a coffee or tea inside and rest after long day for some time. I have to admit, that I was expecting more different flowers, but that was still winter in February, so no surprises. It must be really nice when spring arrives.

Entry fee for foreign tourists is 180 NRP (approx. 1,70 EUR) - still acceptable, but do not expect too much.

Definitely go here if you need time out from the crowds and pollution in Kathmandu. Beautiful gardens, a restaurant one end, and bar/cafe on the other end. Lovely place.

Take a walk around what used to be opulent living in old Kathmandu. The restaurant has good food but mostly is a rest from the hustle and bustle of the city.

This beautiful little garden will enchant you, the architecture is a lovely mix of neo-classic and asian elements and the plants are really exotic and very well assorted. Only regret is the restaurant inside: the food is not bad but way way overpriced. Bring your picninc pack.
