Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park Tours

The Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, often referred to as simply the Darjeeling Zoo, was founded in 1958 to help conserve the unique fauna of the Himalayan range. The 68-acre (27-hectare) zoo, considered among the best in India, houses animals like clouded leopards, Himalayan bears, Tibetan wolves and red pandas.

As a conservation organization, the zoo specializes in captive breeding programs for Himalayan megafauna. Thanks to the success of the snow leopard breeding center, the Darjeeling Zoo is now home to the largest captive population of the endangered species.

Practical Info

The Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park shares grounds with the popular Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, and the cost of admission includes entrance to both.
