Welcome to the stunning and lush Polo Park, the botanical garden that stands out from the rest in Arunachal Pradesh!
If you’re in the mood for a little animal spotting, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a mini zoo housing guinea pigs, rabbits, and various snakes. But that’s not all, folks! The handicrafts center, run by the industries department, offers visitors a good range of traditional shawls, woven carpets, carved caskets, and beautiful tribal cane and bamboo work.
And let’s not forget the main attraction! This botanical paradise features a wide collection of flowers and orchids, with the cane thicknet stealing the show. It may look like a palm with spines on its stems, but it actually grows as a bush! Located on a ridge overlooking the town of Itanagar, the view from the park is simply breathtaking.
If you’re planning a trip to Itanagar, the capital of Arunachal Pradesh, you won’t want to miss Polo Park. Whether you travel by air, road, or rail, it’s definitely worth a visit. And while you’re here, be sure to stop by the main sales emporium in Itanagar to purchase some exquisite handicrafts created by the talented tribal artisans. So come on over and enjoy a fun-filled day at Polo Park!
