It is a small garden with a limited number of mostly sad looking plants to see. The price charged for this visit is far too much compared to what is available in other areas.

2500 rupees and you need to book and also pay in advance :). I paid in the morning for the evening class, however this was during the off season so even better to book a day or so in advance if you can :).
