Binsar Trek

Binsar was one of the finest places I have ever been to. A sleepy hamlet in the Kumaon Himalayas, Binsar is a scenic and serene place to visit. Home to rich flora and fauna, Binsar is also known as the summer capital of Uttarakhand. While I visited Binsar, I remember witnessing the most incredible and majestic views of the mighty peaks of Chaukhamba, Panchachulli, Trishul, and Nanda Devi. Binsar has given me incredible memories and it was not just the incredible peaks, I was overwhelmed to stare at the wide variety of different species of birds and versatile flowers.

At a particular time of the early winters, I packed my bags and decided to escape into the quaint and marvellous Binsar. It was a few hours drive from Nainital and once I reached this amazing place I could not hold my urge to explore every bit of the place. The artistic and beautiful setting of the place makes it a photographer’s paradise and if you like trekking, you will not be disappointed.

The wildlife sanctuary at the lap of the Himalayas is eccentric. Home to a wide range of animals like Leopards, Ghorals, Kakars, Himalayan Black Bears, and even Pine Martens and Red Fox, I was filled with a great deal of joy for being here. The sight of the Himalayan Peaks in the backdrop looked fascinating and the Oak and Rhododendron forests made the place even more appealing.

I visited the famed ‘Zero Point’ in Binsar and what I witnessed left me in complete awe for a long time. The panoramic and picturesque views of the mesmerizing Himalayan Ranges was astounding and I even got to witness the grandeur of the Nanda Devi Peak, Trishul Peak, Kedarnath Peak and Mt. Shivling. All along the journey, this part was the most fascinating for me.

Anyone who chose to visit this place will be not short of options to explore. I felt that I don’t have enough time to check out all the happening spots. The visit to the Bineshwar Mahadev Temple was remarkable. Filled with rich history, the temple looked fabulous owing to the incredible architectural design. The temple complex of Jageshwar and Kasar Devi Temple were the other couple of incredible destinations to visit.

I spent some time visiting the historical Khali Estate. The Khali Estate is associated with a rich history and heritage and offers great natural views. The overwhelming views of the Himalayas from here was a cherishing sight for me. Binsar is not limited only to nature’s extravaganza. My visit to the Museum was really enjoyable.

Though I witnessed the extreme beauty of nature at it’s very best in Binsar, I also took some time out to observe the local lifestyle and the culture of the place. I had an incredible experience walking through the villages and that gave me a deeper delve into the lifestyle and culture of the locals. The walk through the Cedar and Pine Forests was unimaginable and every single bit of the journey was brilliant.

Binsar has the capability to offer more than u anticipate. It has enlightened me with some really bewildering sights of nature and rewarded me with an incredible travel experience. I was a travel enthusiast rate Binsar as one of the finest places that can help you rediscover your inner you.
