Situated 2,100 m (6,900 ft) above sea level, High Altitude Zoo hosts several endangered Himalayan species. Thanks to the high-altitude location, these animals have a chance to thrive while also providing the opportunity for research and rehabilitation. Observe animals like the Royal Bengal tiger, Tibetan wolf, leopard cat, and Himalayan bear at this attraction, and remember to look up, to spot the variety of high-altitude birds, such as the Lady Amherst pheasant and rose ringed parakeet. Although you can access the zoo by road, expect to do a little uphill trekking when visiting. Consider adopting one of the animals to help cover their rehabilitation costs. By using our Nainital trip itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to High Altitude Zoo and other attractions in Nainital.

Its a beautiful zoo located on top of the hill. There are different animals like tiger, leopard, himalyan wolf and some beautiful birds. Location and view will make your trip worthwhile. Just wear good pair of shoes because it involves lot of climbing up because of the hills. Definitely recommended!
Wonderful zoo. Perfect place for kids to spend great time. Not recommended for elderly person as it has too much steep climbing. Best attractions are Tiger, Leopard and Panda.
