This is a terrific place. You can trust the govt. tourist lodges to pick the best locations, and KMVN Binsar has done exactly that. But there is more to it, which makes KMVN Binsar a special place. Nice cosy rooms, very clean toilet, a spectacular terrace to enjoy the sunrise from and to watch 300 km of snow-covered peaks, very... More

Kmvn property is in the lap of Binsar. This is an old property developed by British ions before independence. The terrace of the property feels like touching the clouds quite often. There is no electricity in the night. The property is just adjunct to the wild sanctuary... I would say the sanctuary is more known for its medicinal plants. Good... More

Best place to stay in Binsar and best among all the KMVN tourist lodges. Staying and food and view all are too good. Strictly vegeterian place as in reserve forest and there is also schedule timing allowed to enter the forest. The roof top of the lodge is just awesome.

Stayed in June 2014 for one night. This KMVN rest house is within the Binsar wildlife sanctuary and is a 12 km drive into the sanctuary. The road leading to this rest house is narrow and broken at few places so people who do not have much driving experience in hills should avoid / take a taxi. Food provided is... More

The most wonderful thing about this hotel is its location, right in the forest. The views of Himalayas are also great from the hotel. As you came out of Hotel you are in forest!!! All other resort/Hotel which are using "Binsar" name are not actually inside the forest as this Hotel is. There are few Knowledgeable forest guide, which can... More

If you are looking for worldly comforts then this is not the place for you.As a matter of fact all the luxrious properties in Binsar are not even located inside the protected area... More

Binsar is a must have destination on your itinerary if you are planning Kausani or Almora. Most people do a day trip to Binsar. Let me tell you that you are not doing justice to the place by doing a day trip. The lush green forests and spectacular Himalayan views merit a day and a night. We chose KMVN solely... More

The only thing the KMVN manages is to get the best property at an ideal location. It’s the only hotel situated on the hill top, close to the wild life sanctuary. This gives the visitor a head start to the sanctuary early in the morning. The view from the terrace is also very nice. However, the rooms were dark, dingy... More
