“Where did the animals go?”

Himalayan Zoological Park
Ranked #8 of 62 things to do in Gangtok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 27, 2012

While it was winter and the animals might be hibernating, there was hardly any animals to begin with. Most enclosure had only one poor animal in the exhibit...poor animals, all alone by themselves.

not too many animals, but you get to see animals which you dont usually see in tropical cities like snow leopard, clouded leopard, red panda, civet, Himalayan wolf etc.

try to get hold of the park keeper and he will be of great help when it comes to calling animals that are hiding inside their den.

The place has few exhibits but is a nice walk, clean and worth a couple of hours for kids. Liked the greenery and quiet.

1. Enjoyed that not all animals were caged. Bears and pandas were in their natural habitat
2. Saw snow leopard for the first time.
3. Not many animals seen. The place needs further development.
