Good Zoo with lots of open areas

The zoo is very good and spread over large area, one can either walk from one cell/area of animal to other or can even hire an electric car. The lion & deer safaris are ok

Lots of animals in this zoo. I suggest walking instead of using the vehicle to fully experience the animals.

Chhatbir zoo is the star attraction of Chandigarh city. It takes approx. 4 hours to enjoy the full zoo. This provides an opportunity to humans to encounter with wild life, big animals including birds and reptiles. This place can be accessed by public transportation abd by personal vehicles.
