“Snow leopard and Red panda!!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Ordinarily I do not enjoy captive animals as they are often poorly kept! But I found exception in this zoo, perhaps due to cool weather or something! But I found all the cages/caves clean and animals healthy! Children would definitely enjoy this tour!

“Good zoo with many different collection of animals”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

The highlight of this zoo is the rare Red Panda, a cute little shy bear species.

There are many other animals like the black panther, 3-4 spotted leopards, yak, mountain cats, different kinds of deer, fox, and variety of birds like the macaw, pheasants, fowls and few other colorful bird species. There is also supposed to be a royal Bengal tiger and a bear, but we couldn't catch glimpse of them as they were probably inside their caves :)

The atmosphere is really scenic, all cages are huge and filled with greenery and plants to serve as natural habitat for the animals.

There is an eatery inside the zoo premises serving bakery items, water and soft drinks. There's also a couple of shops selling Tibetan gift items and Darjeeling tea.

For older people, climbing the steep paths may be a problem but there are seats and benches in the main circle for resting. 1-2 hours is enough to cover the entire zoo.
