Excellent remote sanctuary near Almora. Please go to this place if only you and people accompanying your really love nature, appreciate solitude and have the respect for peace and tranquility. It is not a sight seeing place to be ticked off in list. We had seen groups (usual tourist) coming there for the purpose of sight-seeing and spoiling the tranquility... More

Binsar is one of the most beautiful yet under-rated destinations anybody can visit in Uttarakhand. It is a must go-to for all the nature lovers, hence you should update your bucket list. An adventurous road inside the forest takes you to the zero point. It holds amazing scenic beauty such as the view of the Himalayas. Binsar is definitely a... More

A place for nature lovers and trigger happy cameramen! No electricity. Beautiful cycle tracts for mountain biking that you get on rent at the KMVN forest rest-house. The only place that you should stay at whilst in Binsar. Gets you closer to nature and only place in Binsar from where you the Himalayan panorama unfolding in front of your eyes.... More

A very adventurous road takes you to Zero Point in Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary. It is a steep and narrow road, one has to be very careful while driving on it. There are NO animals in Sanctuary and if you are very lucky you may find a few Langurs. The journey and view is beautiful and worth enjoying if you are... More

Stayed at Binsar TRH in midst of the jungle for a couple of days. Driving upto the TRH thru forest was an enjoyable adventure in itself. One should be a careful driver & the vehicle should be in an immaculate condition. Of course a good weather is a must to enjoy fully.Trek to zero point which is 2 kms from... More

Binsar wildlife sanctuary is a dense forest on the high plains...no wildlife..only langurs.... if you are lucky you can spot something early in the morning. The forest in itself is quiet nice and big full of pine, cedar and oak trees....you get splendid views of the Himalayan range from various points of the forest...

Its a dense forest.It has govt entry fee of rs 150per person(adult) and rs 250 for vehicle.Private vehicle is must to reach there. It is a very good jungle walk for nature lovers.There is pin drop silence.Only langoors could be seen. Himalayas view from zero point is wonderful if clouds are not there.

our road trip consisted of Bhimtal - Almora - Kasar Devi - Binsar - Jageshwar Dham.. the focal point of this trip was centered around Binsar.. a 3-day weekend is good enough to visit Binsar from Delhi NCR..this place is a must visit and is a better experience than Nainital etc peaceful, secluded, fresh air, jungle, peaks and amazing roads...

In our honeymoon (Feb 2015) we stayed one night at Binsar and it was really an amazing experience. Since this place is run by KMVN you can expect a good service. At the morning you will get a full bucket of hot water (once a day), this will help you to get fresh at the morning. If you get up... More
