A Visit to The Chhatbir Zoo – A Date with Nature!


Chhatbir Zoo is a major attraction for the people of the tri-city as it plays host to a variety of mammals from all over the world, including the Royal Bengal Tiger, the Himalayan Bear, the Indian Bison, monkeys, hippopotamuses, leopards, elephants, lions, jaguars, a variety of amphibians and reptiles as well as our feathered friends.

Lying on the Chandigarh-Zirakpur-Patiala route, this zoo is located 17 km away from Chandigarh. It is an ideal recreational place for families, students and children.

A field  trip to the Chhatbir zoo was organized for the students of first year of engineering. Besides enjoying the scenic beauty of the park, the students had a  great time learning about the various species and their habitats.

A group competition called “Snapshot” was also organized as a part of the activity. Each group was asked to submit 5 photographs that they clicked while on the visit. The group with the best set of pictures was declared the winner.
