  • Five start for the beautiful Red Panda.. If you are with kids, this is a must visit place. Even as a single member, to see the Himalayan birds and animals, this is an excellent place.

  • This is a heritage place in Darjeeling having special variety of Himalayan species. We could spot snow leopard, Siberian tiger, red panda, black bear, black panther and many colourful birds. The zoo is well maintained and the authority keeps eye on people and encourages bio diversity. The place is quite protected and safe for children. For varieties of rare Himalayan animals this place is a must visit. Amidst the mountain this meeting with vibrant animals and birds will surely make you feel fresh. A perfect place for kids to be here also to spend their relaxing vacation. That's all
