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.

The Binsar forest is good to see sunset in the evening. It is approx 7000 ft" from the sea level, its also known as high altitude forest in Kumaon sector of Uttarakhand.But there no animal can be seen here, the entrance of the forest is INR 150/-per person, car entrance INR 250/- just waste of money & time.

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
