The Trailfinders’ 50th Anniversary Garden celebrates how far the company has come since selling their first overland trips to Kathmandu in 1970. It aims to capture the essence of Nepal and the wider Himalayan region through a representation of the culture, plants and landscape, specifically of the Himalayan foothills.
The garden features a timber shelter inspired by the vernacular architecture of the region, and a network of stone paths leading to it. Water is ever present, both naturally as streams, which power prayer wheels, and manmade in the form of rills. Pinus wallichiana, rhododendrons, meconopsis, primulas and ferns all thrive in these damp and temperate conditions.
