Majestic, calm, peaceful place. It's on kind of rain forest and will give you that feeling when you trek through the forest. If you want enjoy the local wild life then you need stay limited guest house available inside the forest.

Binsar is one of the most beautiful yet under-rated destinations anybody can visit in Uttarakhand. It is a must go-to for all the nature lovers, hence you should update your bucket list. An adventurous road inside the forest takes you to the zero point. It...More
