He said the zoo authorities had time and again been asked by the administration to create their own paid parking or expand the present parking to avoid inconvenience to tourists. Long queues of vehicles can be seen on the highway daily near the zoo resulting in inconvenience to the daily commuters, passengers and tourists coming to the Kangra valley.

Despite availability of land with the Forest Department, the zoo management had failed to construct its own parking in the zoo complex. At present, the zoo had parking for only 50 vehicles, whereas the daily inflow of tourists to the zoo is over 3,000 because of the peak tourist season.
