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...

Binsar wildlife sanctuary is no doubt a wonderful place with all the peace and tranquility. The whole stay at Club Mahindra resort was relaxing . The difficult part was reaching there. Our journey started from Chandigarh with a night halt at Rishikesh. The next part was difficult and confusing. Confusing because the Google maps mentioned the journey time around 7... More

We went there as a group on a weekend. This was not a much planned trip. We started from Delhi around 10 PM and drove through Delhi- Haldwani-Almora- Binsar. The place where we stayed Binsar eco camp was on the other side of forest. The route we choose via Goal devta temple was risky. You should follow the other route... More
