The Amirthi Zoological Park is widely considered as one of the best zoos-cum-nature parks in India. Spread across 25 hectares, tourists can expect to have a lot to do once they arrive. The Amirthi Zoological Park has been operational since 1967 (and is currently in the process of receiving a facelift). Considering its proximity to Vellore city, it is a hotspot for tourists from all over South India. The zoo was once a jungle; however, one half of it was cleared to form a tourist spot while the other half was developed into wildlife sanctuary.

Tourists can indulge in some adventure trekking which leads to a stunning view of a seasonal waterfall. The Amirthi Zoological Park is usually jam-packed with people during the holidays. The animals that one can spot in the park include the famous spotted deer, foxes, pythons and crocodiles, among others. There is also a sizeable bird population which can be found here. A picnic at the park, though cliché-sounding, is a great way to spend the day, because nothing screams rest and relaxation better.

    • The entrance fee may be around 20 INR per head, but I am not sure if there any discounted rates for students. I think it would be better to contact the staff of Amirthi Zoological Park directly.
