This is nothing like our city zoos. This is spread over a wide area and a lot of animals like Red Panda, Black Panther, etc can be seen. This is just beside HMI in the same compound. So this place is also a must visit.

The animals look healthy and well taken care of. The enclosures are large. To top it all there are pkenty of rare animals like clouded leopard, Bison, red panda etc. My toddler daughter really enjoyed the visit. The uphill walk though can be challenging.

It is about 15 mins from city centre, part of city only, and will take minimum 1 hour (just round) to 3 hours (detailed tour) to see all enclosures.
