"High Altitude Zoo of Nainital"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is a high altitude zoo on a very high attitude. We opt for a walk to the zoo from the mall, it took nearly 20 minutes. Cab service is also available for the zoo. Zoo is filled with beautiful animals and birds. All the animals are in good shape.
You have to walk a lot in the zoo, which is similar to moderate trekking. Drink a lot of water and please don't bother the animals, they are already in cage, full of irritation, do not make it worse for them.

"Well maintained Zoo"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Jan 5, 2017
Zoo is on very much top of th city whr you can have b'ful view of th naini lake. Zoo has tiger, leopard, bear, owl, tibbet wolf, barking deer etc. One can find tiger here which is near to impossible to find in Corbett Reserve. Entry ticket is rs 50 for adult but approaching road to zoo is very narrow. One has to hire a taxi from mall road. One time visit

"Nice place (zoo on hills)"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 17, 2016
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 Feb 27, 2016
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.
