Binsar Sanctuary
Binsar Winter Views

Almora (7000+ ft asl) is a Himalayan Hamlet in Kumaon at 68 kms from Nainital and 370 kms from Delhi. Almora is a popular ex-Delhi getaway for its cut off feel, Himalayan views (Oct-March), Pilgrimage (Jageshwar temple) and good weather being at a considerable height. Binsar is a high altitude sanctuary situated at 22 kms from Almora.
Himalayan Views in Almora / Binsar during Winter (Oct-March) are very good and that could be the main reason why anyone would want to arrive here. Migratory birds in Binsar are best spotted in Winter and that’s another reason.
In Summer the reasons to arrive are limited but the plains get so hot and the facts that schools have holidays, every Himalayan hamlet irrespective of views just get filled and only reason one could give that phenomenon would be moderate / pleasant weather.
It doesn’t rain really too hard in Almora / Binsar, so Monsoon could be a good time to arrive for a “Do nothing” getaway.

Recommended Stay-2-3 nights. Himalayan Views-Oct- March
