When I first went through Binsar in 1991 I did pay much heed as I was coming out from a strenous trek from Munshiyari, Mailam Glacier via Chakori. But this beautiful scenic small hill station always made a dent somewhere in my memory. So this time after spending my stipulated stay in Dhikala, Corbett, I decided to make one more... More

nothing much to see in the wildlife sanctuary. you will be going around and around very eagerly to see any animal. We could spot just 2 or 3 deer's. Others than that nothing could be spotted. it is better to visit jim corbett park rather than visiting binsar if you are really wanting to see some animals and wants to... More

I like the trekking part and the captivating and eye feasting views of the enchanting hmalayas. You can see number of peaks from a single point. This is really worth the trek but I think Deoban near chakrata, has a much better view of these ranges.

Stunning lush green forests, with fantastic panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, Binsar wildlife sanctuary is a large forest reserve nestled in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. Treks through the forest offer a great opportunity to spot wildlife (including leopards), several birds and excellent views of the 'snows' as well as of the verdant Shivalik hills that... More

It is really good. The track to zero point is wonderful. We had seen some birds and enjoy the beauty of the dense forest in early morning. It was really good to have walk till zero point. From it, you can see the panoramic view of the himalayas (Kedarnath, nanda devi, trishul etc) if clouds not present. We had stayed... More

Binsar WLS, about 30 Kms north of Almora, is one of the smaller and lesser known wildlife sanctuaries in India. But for that, it is one of the best we have seen. As soon as we entered, we saw two yellow throated martens streak across a meadow in front of us. On the climb to Zero Point (which has a... More

You go to the Binsar Wildlife sanctuary expecting to see some animals but at the most you see a cow and if you're lucky maybe a buffalo. However, the trek to Zero Point is extremely refreshing and peaceful and so it is worth going once.
