its on the top of the hill forest. very much well behaved staffs. too cold area. no electricity so use generator for only 3-4 hrs, have to charge your mobile and cameras by that time. wonderful view of the himalayan range. food too good, they have only buffet for lunch,dinner and breakfast with huge options.

The Pros Nice rooms, friendly staff, decent service, an awesome setting, views to die for, lovely walks around the property with frequent wildlife sightings The Cons No electricity apart from the couple of hours of generator supplied power, you don't get 24 hours running hot water, typical KMVN property with modest service Dont go there looking for five star comfort,...

KMVNs have an affinity to be located in the best locations in all the hubs in the kumaon. Some of them are pretty good, but the binsar kmvn is downright ordinary, if not bad. 7x7 rooms with attached washrooms serving only frigid water, the only place where one can eat is the inhouse restaurant which serves fixed menu breakfast, lunch...

KMVN, Binsar gave us the best views of the mighty Himalayan Range from it's terrace. Inspite of all the drawback, in terms of lack of good maintenance and no electricity(a stipulation in view of the location of the rest house inside the sanctuary), the breathtaking view more than made up for all the things which were lacking.

Well for the view it provides the stay here is worth it for even worse infrastructure and service. However for travellers who are on a vacation and the weightage associated with view of peaks is not very high this is not your hotel. I have visited hotel thrice in last 6 years and will be able to let people know... More

Binsar was our night halt during our visit to Munsiyari. We reached Binsar at night at 8, got past the entry post after paying 250/- person. From the entry point, the rest house is 10 km ahead in the jungle. Roads not in very good condition, need to have an experienced person behind the wheels. Since it was winters time... More

Binsar is a place where you can find all kind of natural resources of Kumaon. And KMVN tourist lodge is located in the hilltop with a amazing view of Kumaon himalaya. You can get a 360 degree view of the area covered with lush green jungle with hundreds of Birds chattering around you. So if you like wilderness this the... More

I stayed in KMVN in the month of November and nothing much had changed from my first visit in 2007 except for a new wing. The rooms are clean and basic. You do have running cold water. Hot water is available in buckets during morning hours. Food is available only in dining hall and they are very specific about their... More
