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...

It is Binsar forest rather than Binsar wildlife sanctuary. If you are expecting to see some wildlife (e.g. Leopard, bear, deer etc), you will be disappointed. We could only see one Hanuman Langur and I guess that is not a difficult find. Even we could not see birds as well. So, from wildlife perspective, it was a flop. However, the... More

Nothing wild is visible in the sanctuary. Good for trekking. Can enjoy chirping of birds, monkeys. View from Zero point is excellent. Total trek to and from takes about one hour. One should go preferable at early morning.

We went in the afternoon after a day of rains. The forest was amazing and the hike in the forest was exhilarating. We were disapponted not see the himalayan range due to clouds. As far as the wild life is concerned, all we could see was few boars and a deer. Despite these disappointments it was worth a visit spending... More
