You can visit here it's up from hustle and bustle of town, it's situated amidst nature and it's treat to watch rare red panda which is very lazy to move around.

Different kind of animals are kept in a more open space instead of keeping them in cages. The Animals looked very healthy and agile. It is a great uphill walk and treak.
