Trip to zoo was lot of fun, specially because no private vehicles are allowed there and then the animals and birds over there. The setting is excellent and animals are kept in very environmently conditions.

There are state run cabs there to run from Shimla station road to take you there. Your own car cab can also take you there and drop you before 200 meters from the ticket counter.
