Binsar has been the favorite hill station of many rich and famous looking for some peace away from the bustling city crowd, and owing to its serene location that still remains quite unexplored Binsar undoubtedly offers that perfect spot for “ME” time!
Once you are inside the sanctuary area of Binsar here are some of my favourite places that you must explore, so bookmark this post for your upcoming Binsar visit!
Note : There is a fee to enter the forest which is different for Indians and Foreigners
here The Khali Estate;
where India’s first Prime Minister once lived has now been turned into a beautiful hill resort with panoramic views
Dak Bunglow of Binsar;
Dak Bunglow was the term used for guest houses in the British era and this Dak Bunglow is your dream come true if you want to get a taste of those British cottages on the hill. It has served as a short abode for many great men including swami Vivekananda.For all those who like scary movies, well this looks right out of the set of “1921” 😉

For a change you will actually find peace in this temple unlike the highly commercialised temples of the city. Connect with the God of Himalayas and let your stress fly away with the winds

Beautiful little cafe right opposite the Binsar Mahadev temple has that perfect hammock over the hills and of course Maggie and Tea for that falwless mountain feel 😉
Highest vantage point in Almora, this spot offers an astounding view of the Nanda devi belt of mountains along with Kedarnath, Shivling and Trishul peaks on a clear day. You can park your vehicles close to the Dak Bunglow and then trek to this point. It’s a beautiful nature trail of around 2 kms easily doable in 20-25 mins so grab those shoes and go for it!
Now you know my favorite spots inside Binsar forest but do stay tuned for more!
