This is a big zoo with very few animals here. Only 1 thing which you won't see in other zoos is the RED Panda here in the zoo. Rest all is passable.

We went with 1.5 year Toddler. Hence, he enjoyed the animals and parrots but not so great for Adults. Maximum it requires 1 hour to see everything including Mountaineering club museum also. Depends on People's interest

don't go if it is raining or snowing, as most of the animals will go in incognito. I saw snow leopard, black bear etc in a natural like enclosure.

Not very much to offer for the tourist, there should be some more interactivity for the tourist. Its a simple ordinary zoo.

Gave a feel of walking by forest. The walk was pretty long. But gave me look of Red Panda, which I never saw before.
