not a big area but still offers quite a number of wild animals in the premise... the bigger cats are usually active in the day, the black bear might not... the iconic red panda should be the prime in the park and very active in the day... so a easy one hour to complete the whole park...

Liked the ambiance, the way of providing the information about the animals, the neat and clean road inside the zoo......Disliked the unhygienic way in which some of the animals has to stay....

This zoological park is a wonderful place to be .. a must see in Darjeeling. Though the entire zoo is good but should not miss the TIGER and Red Panda enclosure. Australian parrot whistle will attract you automatically.
