I saw Snow panda here and it was my first time experience to see snow panda. Other animals were also there. Some Himalayan animals and birds which we never saw in other zoos are kept here.

This zoo is like a nature walk , our family enjoyed it thoroughly , you need to walk 300-500 mtr to visit one cage to another , more over the setup is like walking on road full of greenery ..

The animals here are told to be kept in an open environment that is without a cage in there natural habitat however we didn't find this to be true... teh cages may have been open but they are still cages.

The zoo is located at little offbeat location and who has seen Darjeeling Zoo, they will be little disappointed here as they have very less collection of animals. The entry fee is Rs.25. Though the animal collections are less, but the environment is great and...More

This is really a nice zoo amidst the hills. You have plenty of wildlife to see and that too in a concise manner. The layout is such that you will complete the whole park in 2 hours flat.

The one day sight seeing trip you mentioned is too far apart, for instance Rumtek monastery is 1.5-2.0 hours drive from Sikkim city centre. Banjhakri falls, Ganesh tok, Hanuman tok, Himalayan Zoo are in 1 sequence, while... More

Hi, You can get cab in between Rs1000-1500 depending upon cab. For local sight seeing better to take small car. for baba mandir, tchangu lake, border take Innova for full day charge Rs2500~3000 Do some bargain.
If i have One Day in Gangtok, and i have plans too visit places like Rumtek,Banjhakri waterfall and the Deorali monastery - Can the trip to This park be also accommodated on the same day?
