It is Binsar forest rather than Binsar wildlife sanctuary. If you are expecting to see some wildlife (e.g. Leopard, bear, deer etc), you will be disappointed. We could only see one Hanuman Langur and I guess that is not a difficult find. Even we could not see birds as well. So, from wildlife perspective, it was a flop. However, the... More

Nothing wild is visible in the sanctuary. Good for trekking. Can enjoy chirping of birds, monkeys. View from Zero point is excellent. Total trek to and from takes about one hour. One should go preferable at early morning.

We went in the afternoon after a day of rains. The forest was amazing and the hike in the forest was exhilarating. We were disapponted not see the himalayan range due to clouds. As far as the wild life is concerned, all we could see was few boars and a deer. Despite these disappointments it was worth a visit spending... More

Binsar Wild Life Sanctuary is best if visited on a clear day. One can get mesmerizing view of snow capped peaks of Himalayas. Not much of wild life as such but if one has patience, it is possible to spot lot of birds. Early morning is best time to visit.

You may find a lot of chirping and occasional views of langoors and birds. Roads leading to the top hill are under construction at some points. Ask me and i say that its not worth paying 2000. There will be guides available for tour if you want but i personally find it a waste of time and money.

The mystic aura of dense forest which is a combination of both pine and oak tree located above 2000 meter above sea level giving one an exciting experience of being with oneself in midst of wildlife and beautiful birds sanctuary. One needs to reach Binsar and has to travel almost around 11 kms deep in the forest where the government... More

Hi All, I had planned a visit to Uttarakhand in March with few of my collegues. Among other attractions Binsar Wildlife sanctuary was the one included in our itinerary by our tour organisor Soul Search. I must say this place is a must visit for nature lovers!

I liked the different varieties of plants which are otherwise not seen in Delhi. Somehow varieties of birds were not many. Also the guide was not much informed. The binsar river was quite dirty which spoilt the beauty of place.
