Binsar Tourism & Travel Guide

A perfect refuge for those who crave for solace away from the humdrum of the cities and crowds, this picturesque and quiet little hamlet lies tucked away in the Kumaon Himalayas. Nestled in a beautiful valley, the village is a trekker's paradise, where exploring meadows and dense pine flanked pathways is as dreamy as it sounds. Its main attraction is the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, spread over 300 kms, giving stunning views of renowned Himalayan summits such as Shivling, Kedarnath Peak, Trisul and Nanda Devi. It is a haven for bird enthusiasts, where species such as forktail, parakeets, nuthatches, blackbirds, laughing thrush, monal, magpies, eagles, koklas, woodpeckers and Eurasian jays can be observed. Its vast habitation of flora and fauna includes leopards, Himalayan goral, chital, musk deers, Sumatran serows, jungle cats, wild boars, black bears, red foxes, red giant flying squirrels and many more. Binsar in particular has no restaurants, but one can always head to Almora, which is 33 km away for a good choice of food. Some ideal places to stay here are Kinner Villa, Kasaar Jungle Resort, Idyllic Haven Homestay, Binsar Eco Camp and Club Mahindra Valley Resort which cater to everyone's range of desired comfort and affordability. Binsar can easily be reached via road, train or air. However all modes of transport besides bus or car drop one off very far from Binsar.

If Sunset is more than perfect, then what about Sunrise??? I was melting in nature's arm, with first glimpse of Sunrise."Zero point" is called the 'Sunrise Point'. It's a 2 kms trekking, but looks like 20 kms......haha; when one has to start at 4:30 am in chilling weather of march, with almost 3 layers of clothing(imagine how I managed to walk in that...haha). Zero point gives you the 360 degree view of the Himalayan range ie. Kedarnath Peak, Shivling, Trisul and Nanda Devi. What a beautiful sunrise!! As the golden sun 'Rise and Shine', the Himalayan Peaks shimmer and dances on his commands. So perfect, so eyeful, so scenic.

The capital city of India is a glorious concoction of the old and the new. Temples that are centuries old, archaic Muslim quarters, and modern residencies, all exist alongside each other. Home to over a crore people, Delhi’s tourism is a treasure trove of historic gems, gardens, museums and a thriving food culture. Travel to the metropolis for the vibrant bazaars of Chandni Chowk that give way to Lutyens’ New Delhi, that is the pulse of the city. Among the numerous places to visit in Delhi city, for an insight into the magnificent Mughal era, go to the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, the towering sandstone mosque of Jama Masjid, and experience the sound and light show at Red Fort. Tourists can spend mornings at the extravagant Akshardham Temple and evenings at the Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Dargah (shrine) that boasts of sufi music and delicious kebabs. Another popular attraction of Delhi city is its pulsating markets that from baubles to handicrafts, sell everything you can possibly think of. Those who have travelled to Delhi for its particular brand of food, won’t be disappointed. From hole-in-the-wall eateries and local student cafes in North Delhi to lavish restaurants and bars in South Delhi, there is no dish or cuisine you won’t find here. A huge incentive for Delhi’s tourism is its variety of public transport, wherein the Delhi Metro is the cheapest and easiest way to get around the city.
