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.

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
