December 06, 2023 – Lachhiwala Forest Nature Park is set to unveil its enchanting Herbal Garden and Butterfly Park for tourists in the upcoming season, offering a delightful blend of medicinal flora and vibrant butterflies.
The annual influx of tourists to Lachhiwala Nature Park has prompted an expansion of its artificial lake. Simultaneously, preparations are underway to open a sprawling five-hectare Herbal Garden and Butterfly Park for visitors.
