Was never a fan of place with caged animals (zoo), but this place has some rare species. It tries to maintain the habitat as naturally as possible. The place is very near to the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute.

Although as I stay in Kolkata and compared to 'Alipore Zoological Garden', Darjeeling's Zoo is like a little sister, Small and Cute. Needs more Care in up keeping of the facility.
