More on Binsar


Binsar is located amidst the majestic hills of Himalayan ranges and is known for the surreal beauty of the snow-laden peaks. Zero-point is located inside the premises of Binsar wildlife sanctuary, which apart from being a home to a various variety of wildlife species, is also dotted with the lush pine and deodar trees.
Zero-point is the top most point of the wildlife sanctuary and requires a short trek of 2 km that takes you to the zenith of natural beauty. Zero point provides the 360-degree view of the Himalayan ranges, which includes Nanda Devi, Kedarnath, Shivling, and Trishul. Do not miss the sunrise or sunset from Zero-point, as it is the most recommended activity to do in Binsar owing to the beautiful landscapes.

Binsar is an ideal getaway. I stayed at Club Mahindra property and it was delightful as they organise various activities. I took a trek in the morning and the place was filled with verdant trees and snowy mountains. I spoke to the locals to learn about their culture. Except this there is nothing more to do, making it a perfect relaxing destination.

To escape the chaos of cities and stay in the lap of Mother Nature, I traveled to Binsar, a small beautiful village in the Uttrakhand. I stayed at the Khali Estate-the Mountain Resort. The best part was that I got to stay in huts amidst the glittering pine woods, and with snow-capped mountains overlooking, the place could only be described as paradise. Since it is situated at a very high altitude, the nights get very chilly, hence I would recommend woolens and proper supply of tea or coffee to keep you warm. Keep plenty of moisturizers to avoid dryness.

Very few activities to do around the hill station.

Binsar is perfect for wildlife lovers and trekkers. It can also be visited by couples looking for a romantic getaway from New Delhi and Chandigarh.
