A Zoo at the Top of the World

These monkeys were cold, and so were we. 

You know we love zoos. "Love" may actually not be strong enough a word. Everywhere we go, we go to zoos. And luckily for us, Darjeeling has one of the best zoos in South Asia.

Just knowing we were so much closer to where all of these animals actually roam wild made the zoo that much more interesting. This zoo has many of the same standards of Western zoos in regards to caring for and helping sustain the wild populations of these animals.

The zoo has a large collection of red pandas,

big cats,

yaks and bears, 

and the world's only breeding program for the Himalayan Wolf.
