  • Very nice place to spent 2-3 hours. Beautiful, natural, cool and Peaceful. Being located on a hill makes it more amazing and gives animals a natural environment. You can see here Bengal tiger, Tibetan wolf, Leopard, Bear, spotted deer, barking deer, sambar, various species or peafowls and parrots, Egyptian vulture, red Panda and many more. It's an amazing place.

  • Well managed zoo. All animals were active. Routes were informative. If you are interested in zoo, don't miss this one.

  • Worth visiting no matter how many zoos you have visited Though small in size the zoo packs log of wild animals and birds on varying heights to test your stamina. It takes around 2 hour to visit this place. To enjoy complete zoo follow the yellow mark. The zoo is very clean. A fun for teenagers and young children.
