Sikkim Himalayan Zoological Park in Gangtok

This is zoo is quite unique and the first of its kind in India where animals are kept in natural habitats (well I should say semi natural habitats). it's a wonderful parkland that spans across a vast 230 hectares forested land with elevations ranging from 6,500 t0 8,000 feet. The entrance to the Zoo is located at the end of a short pathway opposite to Ganesh Tok. It's about 6kms from Gangtok town.
