Assam State Zoo to conduct trek daily
GUWAHATI: The Assam State Zoo cum Botanical Garden, which had introduced a trek route inside the zoo premises on weekends, will now conduct the treks everyday.
The 6 kms long trek route is a circular path that takes almost two hours to complete. The trek route features two big lakes and many smaller ones in the area. It should be noted that this is the first trekking route inside the zoo.
The Assam zoo occupies a large area, with the animal exhibit covering only 30 hectares and the remaining 145 hectares is surrounded by trees and hills.
Zoo authorities have mentioned that people are happy to see the scenic landscape and be inside an “urban forest” right in the middle of the city. Notably, the number of participants for the trek has increased threefold.
In the future, the zoo is also planning to introduce rock climbing.
