KMVN Rest house is located just before the Munsyari town. Overall it is ok, you can see the snow-clad Panchachuli (Five peaks) of Himalaya from here. Food is ok, electricity is big challenge. Kids may get bored as there is no TV or other entertainment facilities. But you will get bucket of hot water for bath. Cold water no probs.

Zero point is only 2km walk form hotel. It is the best spot for sunrise. There was no electricity at night. from 7pm to 8:30/9 pm they provide some back... More

We stayed in KMVN Binsar for 2 nights in Jun 2015. Overall it was not bad. Here are our finding: 1. If anyone loves forest and wants to stay inside it, at Binsar, there are only 2 options - KMVN and Forest bungalow at Sunset Point. KMVN is easy to book through online. Forest Bungalow can be booked at Almora.... More

Great ambiance for a 2 nights stay. No electricity after 9pm and hence a great night life experience with candles and torch lights.Excellent Dinner and breakfast items with... More

Typical government place - awesome location. Infrastructure which mush have been good once. Now in a sad state of service and maintenance. They have two categories of rooms - some newer rooms are better than the older lot. The food was okay - not bad but no great. We did a night halt en route to Munsiyari. It is fine... More

Going to Binsar is not the cards of many so was true with us too. Relatively unheard, is said to be 10 kms inside the forest gate, no electricity, nothing except a KMVN resort...so unless someone recommends it was not to be known to us too... But as life does it did to us this time too by making this... More

KMVN resorts have the bestest of locations, but then it is uphill Pros - vantage location with best panoramic views of the Kumaon Himalayas from the roof - best views of the sunrise Cons - poorly furnished rooms, with slack room service - food quality is basic - no electricity post evening hours
