High Altitude Zoo

Overlooking the town is Nainital’s excellent High Altitude Zoo, a steep 1.5km climb from the southern end of the Mall, and home to all sorts of exotic creatures such as Siberian tigers, Tibetan wolves, leopards and Himalayan black bears. It’s well managed, with detailed explanations in English and a tiny Shiva temple tucked away at the top.
