Himalayan Zoological Park - Review
The Himalayan Zoological Park or the Gangtok Zoo is sure to be one of the most unique zoo experiences. All of nature’s bounty that the Himalayas have been blessed with has been preserved here in a rare collection. Even if you are planning a short trip don’t forget to put this one on your list.
The Red Panda, the Snow Leopard and many other lovely and unique Himalayan creatures can be seen here, in a largely preserved habitat. The species you will see are simply astonishing. The clouded leopard, leopard cat etc. are some other animals that shouldn’t be missed.
It isn’t just a place to display these rare animals but also a breeding ground and a center for conservation. So, one needs to be careful and stay out of the restricted areas to respect the space of the animals.

Himalayan Zoological Park, Gangtok Reviews
If you love animals you will like this place not because you get to see them as you paid the entry fee! this place looks more like a natural habitat and you rarely get to see all of the animals listed. But I felt content after seeing those beautiful red pandas getting relaxed over a tree
One of the best and coolest place to visit to blend in with the nature's and also to enrich your knowledge with seeing, feeling, scents and what not. A very big I mean huge zoo. Yes I know animals aren't to keep in a cage but I won't call it a cage but just territory because the way they keep it's like a huge territory and huge space to roam, play, roll. It's properly maintained. The location is well planned. The mountain leopard and snow leopard is a treat. Okay you visit it yourself just a para to let you guys know it's worth it and yes the place is beautiful, calm and harmonising.
How I loved roaming in the greenery along with the rare and wilds around. Spread around in a vast area and spent easily around 2 hours without any hassle. Remembered good old childhood days seeing a red panda which was quite exciting and probably seeing for the first time in so many years. The area provided to the animals made them feel that they are in their natural habitat. Only problem is that the crowd that comes should be monitored strictly and charged for littering the place and troubling the animals, it really feels hurt seeing adults also behaving like children and trying to break the set rules.
Its is a zoological park near Ganeshtok in Sikkim. It is a beautiful place where you can see many animals. The picture which is uploaded is Red Panda, which is the state animal of Sikkim. This place is very peaceful where no vehicles are allowed. One has to walk and explore and witness the beauty of this beautiful northeastern state of Sikkim. Whenever you be in Sikkim try to cover this place
Beautiful Place U can easily see different types of animals as well as birds... The best part is they maintain it very well so that U can easily see all the different Species of Animal and Birds...
