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
Sikkim Himalayan zoo is one of its kind nature park where animals live as in their almost natural habitat. This place can be described as rarest zoo where few rare animals can only be seen no where in the world specially the snow leopard and red panda in one place. Golden pheasant and silver pheasant birds are also eye catching with their magnificent display of colours. The variety of civet cats are also an attraction. The flora around itself is an another attraction. As you walk around to see you shall experience a wonderful nature walk. There is a cafeteria inside which serves some hot snacks and fast foods as well.
The place the exquisite red panda, a snow leopard, leopard cat and many more interesting animals. The whole zoo is set up in a semi natural environment and walking through the terrains gives you a complete feel of the jungles that we had seen in Jungle Book and Tarzan! One of the most scariest thing I encountered was that the cage of the snow leopard was open from the top, knowing the fact that it can easily climb up and come out. The cage also had a resting place for the leopard, that few metres away from the boundary. So u can see him in the eye, standing just a few metres away. The place is refreshing and gives you that connect with nature and animals. A must visit place for animal lovers and kids.
This is how you preserve natural beauty. The local government has played a pivotal role in making such beautiful place for public, to showcase the natural resources the state possesses. Really, loved this place & the preserved Himalayan flora. Do visit this place, if you're visiting Gangtok. A two wheeler drive will be enthralling, only if you're Lucy enough to get one.

Very arduous to walk against the slope. Nearly 3 km long path. Some roads are one way must be covered by walking only. However it is convenient to take a taxi to travel through the region. A large number of wild animals as well as birds live in Nealy natural environment.
