  • it is in DARJEELING DISTRICT,called ZOO. IT IS a very nice place,well maintained. big area. it is on hill that's why not at all suitable for the persons in wheel chair.everywhere,there are slopes. From 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. it is open.
  • Not a great one. neatly maintained. One can see Red Panda if you are lucky. Varieties of leopards can be seen here. Most of the animals related to Himalayan region. Wildlife lovers can see different variant of animals belongs to Himalayan region.
  • Beautiful place with quite of few animals to see. Himalayan mountaineering institute is also in its premises and offers a great introduction to mountaineering. Also a beautiful museum with a large collection of Himalayan species.
  • This is the most beautiful place in Darjeeling. A nice place to visit throughout the year. The place has also an zoological park which is the major attraction. You can find animals like Tiger, panda, snow leopard, bear, lion, cheetah, coala, and lot more. There is an entry fee to visit the place and is around 50 Rupees when I visited this place during summer of 2017. The institute has its own museum which has a good collection of things related to mountaineering.
  • Beautiful zoological park, situated in the natural habitat of Himalayan forest, very near to Darjeeling city, a very famous tourist destination. The park hosts the famous and rare Red Panda, which is its breeding centre also. Beside it, the zoo also keeps variety of other Himalayan animals, birds and reptiles. Very well maintained, very clean and silent. The bonus is to get a chance to visit the beautiful museum which keeps specimen of different kinds of animal kingdom from different ages and to visit the Great Tenjing Norge Mountaineering Institute, which has another great museum keeping alive the memories of different expedition to Mount Everest.
