"Nice place (zoo on hills)" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
It's a great zoo on hills and a must visit place when you are going to Nainital. Mainly zoo is on hills and it makes it different from other zoo. Mostly all the birds and animals are available here. It is very neat and clean. Also when you roam in zoo with clouds crossing it feels awesome.

"Good but tiring"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
The zoo is located at very high altitude so require 2hrs to visit. The Whole Zoo is vertical but one can see Tiger, Bear and many more animals. It was really good and worth exploring experience.

Zoo location at such high altitude in itself makes it worth seeing, zoo is neat & clean with amazing animals like Red Panda, Japanese Monkey, Bear, Panther & Tiger & amazing birds. For Kids & elders too worth visiting.

"What a Zoo to visit but it is too small"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 27, 2015
Awesome Zoo and better thing is that sightseeing is much more interesting than Zoo. No doubt that Zoo is too small as compared to other Zoo but when you reach the top of the mountain you will feel that you are the only one man at that height because you will see Nainital at your foot. Clouds are looming over your head. Lake was looking so beautifully. I advise you to visit more than 3 hours. Best time is that from December to January.

"Must visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 12, 2015
I came to know about this zoo after visiting Nainital a lot many times. Zoo is something that I never find interesting as they all are mostly same. But Nainital Zoo is an exception to this.

It is an amazing place. There are a lot of animals like Lion, Deer but the best part are the Birds specially the White Peacock

Do not forget to take your Camera.

"No need to go"

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted Oct 5, 2015
No need to go there by climbing so high and also spending Rs. 50 for entry fee and Rs. 30 for share car. To find out animals you have to climb high and high and last to explore nothing extraordinary. Few animals are there which are also seen in any zoo in India.

"Beautiful and wonderful surprise"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 24, 2015
Never realized how scenic a high altitude zoo could be. This came as a wonderful surprise. The walk around is almost as good as a trek - as you need to constantly keep climbing. You may not be able to take your car to the top, as there's not enough parking, but there are paid ferry services right from the Mall road which are very quick. Kids will especially love to visit here.

Excellent zoo. Very neat and clean with variety of animals and tigers and leopards are just amazing. Lucky to witness a fight between 2 tigers and response of Zoo staff to the situation.
