You may get to see wild creatures not commonly visible elsewhere. Most of the area is out of bound for visitors. People generally brood over the Panda & the Snow Leopard. An out of town experience for the serenity.

Beautiful place. This is a zoo with a difference. The animals are kept in big open enclosures. There are not many animals but red panda is worth watching.

If you have kids with you, do visit this place definitely. The entire setting is under nature. You have to make multiple stops on your way to visit the different animals which have been kept in natural surroundings.
