High Altitude Zoo, Nainital Reviews

  • Nice place to visit. You'll get to see tiger and Cheetahs closely. You can reach this place only by Government vehicles ( shuttle service ) .. so you may need to wait for around 30 minutes to 1 hour. Be prepared to walk or climb all the way up to the zoo and inside the zoo as well.

  • It's usually very busy, bustling place with a lots of visitors... Since all type of animals being present here, which attracts a healthy crowd!! Immaculate surrounding with pure drinking water facility make this a Phenomenal place.. I mean you'll just feel blissful and lively spending a day with nature!!

  • Superb Zoo... There are different types of wild animals and different types of birds also. The management of Zoo is also very cooperative and direction for each section are indicated so there is no chance to miss any animal of Zoo if you follow the directions. The weather at the zoo is also very nice and environment is very safe. Perfect place for kids and family also the safety is also considered by Zoo management.

  • It's a nice zoo.. loved the albino peacock and the birds. The red panda was really cute. The leopards were smaller than usual, maybe babies. There was a tiger, bears, etc. It's a good place to visit if you're on a tour to Nainital!

  • Good experience. Walking is little difficult as we have to climb up to visit each animal, but it is a different experience. From mall road we will get a shuttle service Rs40 per person for pick up and drop. Private vehicle is not allowed to zoo. Red pander is good attraction. Tigers can be seen closely. We maintained
