Binsar is a picturesque sleepy hamlet and one of the most scenic spots in Kumaon Himalayas. Pitched at the impressive altitude of 2,420 m, 95 km from Nainital (one of the most famous hill station of north India), it offers a majestic view of the snow covered Himalayan peaks, The mesmerising range Chaukhamba, Trishul, Nanda Devi, Shivling and Panchachuli are all around Binsar. On a sunny day, one can catch a glimpse of the holiest shrines in the Himalaya, Kedarnath, Badrinath and Gangotri. It is a fascinating spot, encircled by a vast wildlife sanctuary and many rare birds, animals and flowers. Binsar is also trekker's paradise. Trek in the salubrious air, amidst the misty mountain trails, towering oak and rhododendrons. The mantle of green hangs all around- rocks covered with unusual moss and ferns, flowers and shrubs-foliage sprouting out of every conceivable nook and corner of the hillside. Outside Binsar is the temple complex of Jageshwar nestled in a beautiful valley crested by majestic deodars.
