Sikkim Himalayan Zoological Park

#Theme park in Gangtok

The Himalayan Zoological Park in Gangtok, East Sikkim, is home to various Animalia belonging to the Himalayan region, spread over an area of 230 hectares. The Animals include the Himalayan Black Bear, Red Pandas, Snow Leopards, Leopard Cats, Tibetan Wolves, Masked Palm Civets, Barking Deer, Spotted Deer, Crimson-Horned Pheasant, Himalayan Monal Pheasant, among others.

The uniqueness of the Park lies in the fact that the animals here live in their perfectly-replicated natural habitat, which makes it one of the first in India to do so. This offers an unparalleled experience to the tourists, as they see the creatures behave as if they were in their natural habitat, the effect of which no zoo can replicate. Apart from the remarkable experience, the Zoological Park also offers a splendid view of the majestic Himalayas, and in particular, Mt. Kangchenjunga.
