  • Very nice and well maintained zoo. The collection of animals is not very large. But the atmosphere totally clean and well maintained. Inside the same campus is the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and the Bengal History Museum. Also there are small shops near the entrance of the Zoo which gives us a chance to wear traditional dress and have photos. Very nice place for family visit
  • Animal has enough room for roaming in cage. Very neat and clean area. Separate place for mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds. A museum of Natural history enhance the attraction of this place. Himalayan mountain institute is another educative spot located inside this zoo. It has also a museum composed of all history related to Himalayas and its climbers and good showcase of their used equipments.
