Avoid going on saturday, sunday and holidays. They have higher entry fee on these days and you will encounter too much crowd also. before getting ticket for battery operated vehicle check for waiting period.

Due to lack of time we took one of the electric buggies to take us through the zoo. The visit lasted about one hour and thirty minutes. The zoo is best and clean. Drinking water is available free of cost via large reverse osmosis stations.

The zoo is huge in terms of area and capable of consuming one full day of your Mysuru itinerary. Though if you enjoy the animals without clicking pics, you can save much time. However, there are battery operated vehicles (charged separately from the entry fees)...More

The entry fee is 50 for adults and 20 for kids. It's a long walk yo see the zoo so if u don't prefer walking then there is vehicle available inside. You can go for that , around 5 people can go in that.
