It is different from other usual zoological park. Red panda is special attraction here. So if you want to see Zoological park in nature than it will be better for you.

The one day sight seeing trip you mentioned is too far apart, for instance Rumtek monastery is 1.5-2.0 hours drive from Sikkim city centre. Banjhakri falls, Ganesh tok, Hanuman tok, Himalayan Zoo are in 1 sequence, while... More
