A very adventurous road takes you to Zero Point in Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary. It is a steep and narrow road, one has to be very careful while driving on it. There are NO animals in Sanctuary and if you are very lucky you may find a few Langurs. The journey and view is beautiful and worth enjoying if you are... More

Stayed at Binsar TRH in midst of the jungle for a couple of days. Driving upto the TRH thru forest was an enjoyable adventure in itself. One should be a careful driver & the vehicle should be in an immaculate condition. Of course a good weather is a must to enjoy fully.Trek to zero point which is 2 kms from... More

Binsar wildlife sanctuary is a dense forest on the high plains...no wildlife..only langurs.... if you are lucky you can spot something early in the morning. 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...

Its a dense forest.It has govt entry fee of rs 150per person(adult) and rs 250 for vehicle.Private vehicle is must to reach there. It is a very good jungle walk for nature lovers.There is pin drop silence.Only langoors could be seen. Himalayas view from zero point is wonderful if clouds are not there.

our road trip consisted of Bhimtal - Almora - Kasar Devi - Binsar - Jageshwar Dham.. the focal point of this trip was centered around Binsar.. a 3-day weekend is good enough to visit Binsar from Delhi NCR..this place is a must visit and is a better experience than Nainital etc peaceful, secluded, fresh air, jungle, peaks and amazing roads...

In our honeymoon (Feb 2015) we stayed one night at Binsar and it was really an amazing experience. Since this place is run by KMVN you can expect a good service. At the morning you will get a full bucket of hot water (once a day), this will help you to get fresh at the morning. If you get up... More

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
