Located within a distance of 30 kilometres from the Almora town of Uttarakhand, Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary is a paradise for the nature lovers and explorers. Nestled amidst the high mountains of the beautiful Kumaon, Binsar is not a town or a village, but entirely a forest region. Established in 1988 mainly to protect the broad-leaved oak trees of Himalayas, it has now become a haven for more than 200 species of birds and almost half as many plants and animals. The best part about Binsar is that every experience is real and as authentic as it gets.
There is a government rest house inside the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary and other private properties where you can stay for the night. Nevertheless, when you visit Binsar, you still get the feeling of stepping into the real wilderness where nature has the last word. You do not get a car or jeep to roam around the forest - it needs to be done on foot. It is an excellent opportunity for the adventure-hearted to be one with nature and take in the beauty and mystic appeal of it all. There are some trekking trails as well, established over the years for the tourism purposes - some easy to walk, others a bit strenuous. However, all of them guarantee a great deal of fun and adventure, that is a given.
Another great attraction of the forest is the majestic panoramic view of the Himalayas, stretching for over 300 kilometres right into our neighbouring country Nepal is a huge attraction of Binsar sanctuary, more than wildlife or anything else.
