I like to walk and the walk to the Zero point of Wildlife Sanctuary was worth it. It took us about 3 hrs to reach the top but then we took many halts on the way. I think the best experience ( if you have the strength to walk 25km a day) is to walk around the sanctuary. There are... More

This place at this point of time is nothing else but green. On a more lighter note I can say had my trip been more than a day or two even I would have been covered by moss!! But seriously the great pine trees n saal were just a treat for a soul fed up of city life. The place... More

We were looking out for some place which was untouched ( wanted to avoid tourist crowd ), pristine and away from the hustle bustle of any city life. A place you can just blend in with nature. Binsar was the right answer for such location. Surrounded by forest all around with no electricity ( just solar lights ) and the... More

We were staying at club mahindra so went early in the morning - 7am to the Binsar sanctuary. Ideally one shd b there by 630am. Road onside is 9 km and very bad / takes 45 min to reach guest house. From there it is 90 min two way journey. Lovely panoramic view of the Himalayan ranges and 5-6 peaks... More

I visited Binsar along with my family and friends . The uniqueness and pure unpolluted atmosphere made the location immediately likable. The view of sunrise and sunset was just fantastic. The majestic peaks in the distance were like a garland of gems strewn in front. The location, accommodation of KMVN, food and staff was all above expectations. In any case... More

I drove to Binsar on 28 January 2014. Birdlife was poor due to snow fall a few days ago; but it being a sunny and warm day, landscape was great. Visited Khali Estate too. Attacking some pix.

The Binsar Game Sanctuary is just not worth the trip. Why they charge 150/- per head and 250/- for the car cannot be understood. No signage, no information, no birds, no wildlife, a decent view of the snow clad peaks. The walk to zero point has no meaning what so ever. The shop at the entrance has very unfriendly and... More

Panoramic view of Himalayan belt from Binsar is a must view. Trekking to zero point is an adventure however I found people walk only a short distance and come back. Trek till zero point to have real trekking and adventurous fun. Mahindra resort has a property little away from the wild life sanctuary but it is very comfortable stay and... More

the sanctuary does not boast of animal sightings but is is told that leopards prowl there. Zero point has clear view of trishul and nanda devi peaks(the weather has to be good). lots of trekking routes and one can stay at KMVN/Binsar retreat/khali estate etc. go there for absolute peace and tranquility. u will not find electricity there but the...
