Thimphu Takin Zoo Thimphu Takin Zoo

Thimphu Takin Zoo

Located in Thimphu, the Motithan Takin Preserve is a wildlife area primarily for Bhutan takin, and visitors can also see muntjac (barking deer) and sambar. The takin is the national animal of Bhutan, famous for its unusual appearance. In the past, a small zoo was erected to hold a group of takin, but the King felt that a Buddhist country confining animals was not right. The animals were thus released, but they did not leave the area, and instead walked through the streets looking for food from locals. Eventually, the country decided to put them in a preserve at the edge of the city, and an area of 8.4 acres was designated for the animals. Visitors can go to a fence and observe them closely in their natural habitat. There are future plans to bring other animals to the preserve such as the red panda and the Himalayan serow.
