After the completion of our morning journey, we were ready to head next place Mysore Zoo. Mysore zoo is best place where you will get to see nearly all types of creature exist in the World. Mysore Zoo is 157 acre widely spread area where zoo mentors maintaining Zoo like their own home. Karnataka Government spending enough money on Mysore zoo and it is appearing like one of the gem of Mysore City.
Another must see attraction in Mysore is Zoo, formally called Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens. It's rightly considered the best in India, and is perhaps in Asia too. It's large, clean, and has every imaginable animal, bird, reptile, and amphibian specie in spacious enclosures. You must be ready to walk for 2-3 hours and about 4 km to properly watch everything. There is one restaurant/snack/water/toilet break in middle of route. Since animals are primarily active in early morning or post-afternoon, you should plan to visit before 11 am (for birds) or after 3 pm (for mammals). Zoo is open from 8:30 am to 5 pm on all days except Tuesday. Entry fee for adults is 60/- on weekdays and it's more than justified.If you cannot walk, or are in hurry, you can do an hour long tour of whole area through battery operated vehicle (150/- per person) but that should only be your last resort. Vehicle stops 6-8 places on the trip (they say 3 places, but it will stop more) and you get about 5 min to go and see. Other animals have to be seen in motion, and obviously some inside enclosures will be missed. My experience with these group vehicles is that most other people to seem to come with little interest (not sure why they come at all) and won't even bother getting off vehicle or just rush through the displays and walk back. I end up being last person to board, and hence driver and other passengers aren't too happy, and I end up guilt tripping into rushing too. So yeah, use this if walking is not at all possible or time is hard constraint.Another suggestion- most people will start touring from right to left (starting with giraffe, counter clockwise) as that's natural direction the way zoo is set up, and this walk will have reptiles and birds first, and large animals like tigers, leopards, wolfs, elephants, etc. at last. Given duration and length of walk, one tends to get exhausted and lose interest towards end of the walk. Hence, if your interest is to see those large animals then you should start tour from left to right (clockwise).
4. Mysore ZooWith a wide range of animal species, Mysore zoo is one of the best zoological parks in in the country. Walking on a 4 Km long track, you can see a variety of birds, snakes and other wild animals all at one place. To my surprise, the zoo also features Rhinos, African Elephants and Giraffes. And yeah, the white tiger and white peacock were just awesome.
