Not usually one for zoos, I had read that this one had some good facilities for their animals. Once we got to the zoo, it was easy to see that it was true. There were typically only one or two animals in each pen, and the pens were much larger than other zoos that we'd been to. There were some different animals there that are supposedly not often found in zoos (red pandas and snow leopards!). Price of admission was included with entry to the Mountaineering Institute. Definitely worth checking out.

The layout of the zoo was simple. All facilities were neatly marked, and directions were clearly laid out, for visitors to understand. There were healthy active animals, who seem to be enjoying their stay in big, sunlit enclaves. The collection of canine was impressive. Birds like macau and intensely colorful pheasants were a delight. Both the bird enclosures were full of bright big specimens. It was a short but delightful visit.

Really iteresting Zoological park with most Himalay animals on show. Entry only 100 rupees for foreigners and 10 rupees for still camers. Get close to amazing Tigers, bears, deer and red pandas that are just beautiful.
