Very well kept zoological park. Happened to see rare species like snow leopard, red panda etc. A must visit specially for children. There is a lot of walking involved. Don't forget to take an umbrella during rainy season.

This place is right opposite to the Ganesh tok temple.. Most tour operators in Gangtok do not include this place in their 3,5,7,10-point tours probably because you would need good 2 hours to visit this place and they can cover other smaller attractions nearby in...More

The one day sight seeing trip you mentioned is too far apart, for instance Rumtek monastery is 1.5-2.0 hours drive from Sikkim city centre. Banjhakri falls, Ganesh tok, Hanuman tok, Himalayan Zoo are in 1 sequence, while... More
