  • After paying requisite fee we entered in the Binsar Wildlife sanctuary. Place is good for visit. But we returned from mid as road was not good. Our bolero neo sticked in concrete and soil...

  • Binsar is a wild life sanctuary close to Almora. You can drive up to the sanctuary check post, pay the fees (Rs 150 per Indian tourist and Rs 250 per vehicle) to enter the sanctuary and drive 10km...

  • The sanctuary is situated around 5 km from the main hotels . The charges per person are 150₹ and for the car 250₹ . Along with that 10 km drive inside the sanctuary which is narrow and risky , only drive if you know how to drive nicely in mountains . And then a 2 mm hike to see the zero point . We didn’t see even a single bird on the way . 500₹ guide who says will take telescope to help you see birds . Complete waste of time to go during. Day / evening . Can try to go early morning ad they say some birds can be visible at the time
  • It depends on the weather and time of the day whether you spot any wildlife/birds in the hiking trail, as well as whether you get to view the snow capped ranges from the view point. Unfortunately it was cloudy when we visited so the view point was a bit disappointing. As for the hiking trail, it's quite serene and beautiful to walk through the forests, and we saw a few birds along the way too, though quite far away. It's around 2km of walking (one way) and 4km overall, with rest stops along the way if you need to sit.
