This zoo is mainly visited for Red panda & snow leopard, but I found all other animals kept in a very clean & hygienic environment with proper care being taken...Jaguar, Fox, Tiger, Pheasant etc are the other must see animals.

Beautiful day wandering through the Zoo with my husband. Friendly staff and clean toilets. Foreign travelers needed to pay for having cameras which was fine as it was not a huge addition to our ticket. Truly enjoyed our day

Wonderful collection of animals and birds. The red panda and snow leopard being top attractions. The tiger was huge. Added bonus were the old trees and free ranging birds of many species all over the place.

a visit to the zoo demands great energy as it is situated on a hill and each enclosure is quiet far from each other. snow leopard is the star attraction. entry fee is 60 rupee for adult and child. time required -90 minutes

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.
