Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the Himalayas on top of the Jhandi Dhar hills. It is about 33 km north of the Almora town in Uttarakhand, India. From a place called Zero Point in Binsar one can see the Himalayan peaks like Kedarnath Peak, Shivling, Trisul and Nanda Devi.
If you are searching for peace and solitude then Binsar may just be the place for you. The air is invigorating and the mountain views are glorious as is the feel of brown leaves crunching underfoot.
Binsar is a tranquil forest resort tucked away in the Kumaon Hills far, far away from the madding crowd. Binsar is a gorgeous hill station perched on top of the Jhandi Dhar hills at an altitude of 2412 m, and is completely surrounded by dense forests. Oak, rhododendron, pine and deodar grow in amazing abundance on the hills of Binsar. The mantle of green hangs all around – rocks covered with unusual moss and ferns, flowers and shrubs – foliage sprouting out of every conceivable nook and cranny of the hillside. The entire hill resort is now a sanctuary.
Time just stands still at this lovely hill station. In Binsar you will keep discovering new walking trails up the mountains and down the valleys, new lookout points for another spectacular sunset. The intimate little hill retreat of Binsar makes you feel that nothing can ever come between you and nature.
