1 Snow Leopard & 4 Red Pandas are the main attractions in a small zoo. They appear well fed, but a few were pacing up & down, a sign of depression The birds are pretty too.
This is a very different zoo! Most of the animals are not in small cages but a huge enclosure or merely a wall. A lot of animals are there. Snow leopards and red pandas were really worth a look!
Hard to locate the animal...collection is small. Atmosphere is good...still I think no joy for the kids...only hard ride & ride. Lucky to spot the beer in semi-natural environment. Noyhing extraordinary...Darjeeling zoo/Gowhati zoo far better than this.
This zoo is quite well maintained and you can see many animals from the hilly regions here. The lion here is so beautiful. The mountaineering institute and museum are also worth a watch as they have the original equipment used by the people who have completed their Everest summit and fascinating back stories for their adventures.
It has got a very different overlay. The hill is designed for different animals and their habitats rather than cage adjoining cage! Roads leading to them are bad. You'd feel the bump even in your SUV. Decent eatery inside. Don't hesitate to take the trails of walk inside. Carry umbrella and leave that wrist watch in the car.
The animals of the Himalayan region that are found at the zoo are a delight for children as well as adults. Do not miss the museum which gives a rich visual history of mountaineering in these regions.

They also have snow leopards, two species of civets, a variety of Indian mountain goats and lots of colorful birds. The place is green, they have... More
Trip to Zoological Park in Gangtok was very good with a versatility of animals, birds and fishes there. Endangered species of Red Panda was also there. Leopard and Tigers attracts very much with the yaks, himalayan wolf, and other animals. Collection of birds was also very good. There is one aquarium room having 8-10 aquariums with small fishes.
I loved it! We went in off season, and only saw 2 other people in the whole park. The animals were in semi natural surroundings, both protecting the endangered species, without feeling so much cruel like many zoos these days, the clouded leopard could have had bigger space, there is a long way to go in terms of conservation but...
