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.

I visited this zoo for the first time and it made me amazed that the management is done so well here. Proper mantainance of the all the cages and also at the height where people cannot reach towards the animals and harm them. The entry for for per person is 50rs and for kids below 5yrs free. The surrounding is kept clean and people do cooperate to management. The map of the zoo is provided in the photos do visit and let everyone know about you experience. 😊😊😊😊

It was a wonderful experience you usually spend about approx 1.5 hours here
It was really a nature walk. Flora n fauna is too good. Animals present n good show as if they are trained. Really hard wonderful time with kids
It is a nice place to visit. The park has rare species of animals and is quite large in area. It even has a watch tower which provides an incredible view. There are lots of trees almost like it is a forest.
This is an awesome place with long Devdaru Trees. I liked them so much. This place good to hang around rather than for the animals there. There are quite few animals but the greenery is fantastic.
