Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park

#6 of 14 things to do in Darjeeling

The zoo is located near the Jawahar Parbat. A steep pedestrian road leads you to the gate of the largest high altitude zoo in India. do not underestimate this place like other city zoos, some of the inhabitants here are so unique you can get a glimpse of them just here. The zoological park is combined with the mountaineering institute as well as the Bengal Natural History Museum, so buy a Rs.60 ticket and you get to visit all three of them. Unlike other zoological parks where you just visit the animals, here you can adopt them. You can pay for the care of an animal of your choice and in the process support its conservation. 

Timings: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm in the summer season, 8:30 am to 4 pm in the winter season
