Amirthi Zoological Park - Review
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.

Good lush green forest and few animals.. lots of monkeys. Neat and Clean. The time when we went(August 3rd week) the entry to the way to the waterfalls was closed because there were no water.Overall a good place to hangout for one day.
There is not much to look about. Few animals and trees. But you can have some fun if you go with your friends. There is a water body nearby, but still nothing much to see
