our road trip consisted of Bhimtal - Almora - Kasar Devi - Binsar - Jageshwar Dham.. the focal point of this trip was centered around Binsar.. a 3-day weekend is good enough to visit Binsar from Delhi NCR..this place is a must visit and is a better experience than Nainital etc peaceful, secluded, fresh air, jungle, peaks and amazing roads...

In our honeymoon (Feb 2015) we stayed one night at Binsar and it was really an amazing experience. Since this place is run by KMVN you can expect a good service. At the morning you will get a full bucket of hot water (once a day), this will help you to get fresh at the morning. If you get up... More

The terms wildlife sanctuary could be misleading here. It is a beautiful forest and great for walking, but do not go in expecting to see a lot of wild animals. There is an entry charge of Rs 200 per person (If i remember correctly !!) and then you get to drive through the forest all the way to the top.... More

Binsar wildlife sanctuary is a dense forest on the high plains...no wildlife really..only langurs....perhaps if you are lucky you can spot something really early in the morning sometimes....The forest in itself is quiet nice and big full of pine, cedar and oak trees....you get splendid views of the Himalayan range from various points of the forest...there are two ways of...

The place is lush green, peaceful and very calm. Apt location to get away from the maddening rush and spent some time with yourself. Having said that, it's not a place to spot wild animals rather good for forest walks/trekking.

travel to this place only for the peace.. one can trek through the numerous trails and get lost in the quiet nature with only the chirping of birds for company..or you can gaze at the stars so clear in the sky and wonder at anything & everything...
