In the Garden
We are now at the start of the hot, wet season here in Laos, so the garden is looking lush and green. Many of our plants going into flower and you can hear and see birds, butterflies and reptiles around the garden.
Ginger Garden – The start of the rainy season means our Ginger Garden is bursting with life. Many of the species on display are in flower, and you can see carpets of these beautiful blooms on the ground as they grow from the rhizomes. The smell is rather pleasant too!
Arbortetum – With the return of the rain our trees are looking their best. Take some time to marvel at the huge variety of different leaf shapes and flower types on display.
Pha Tad Ke Cave – Visit our cave and enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest along the way. You can see unique limestone plant species along your route; Keep your eyes peeled for orchids in particular. Nestled at the base of Pha Tad Ke Mountain, our cave is home to a Buddha and provides a moment of tranquillity after your short trek from the gardens.
The cave hike requires moderate fitness level. We STRONGLY recommend hiking boots and a full bottle of water.
Birds – With many plants now in flower and fruit there’s a lot of activity amongst the birds in the garden. You can hear many different calls but they can be harder to spot. Be quiet, still and patient and you’ll likely get to see a few. Our cafe is a good place to view them from, as many like to hang around in the trees around our pond.
We run a variety of courses and longer trainings for Luang Prabang locals, on topics such as botany, horticulture and ecotourism. Please get in touch with us via the Contact Us section of our website if you have any queries.
