“Experience: This was the Mid of june 2012 when we planned to go to mukteshwar and Binsar from Delhi to mukteshwar first and then mukteshwar to binsar by our own car. We started 5:45 am in the morning and reached at Mukteshwar at 4:30 pm after taking no. of snacks and photo session via Gajrola, Haldwani, Bhimtaal and bhowali etc.. We filled our car tank full at haldwani as came to know there is no petrol pump near mukteshwar area. We stayed at early booked KMVN guest house (I think this is only the recommended place to stay as there is no such more options are available) where quality of food was good and location of hotel was really perfect and this was only the thrilling concern for us else Place was cool and calm but not so exisiting may be because of June temperature which was 35~36 degree Max. and minimum was 22~23 degree. Local Market is 6 Km away from KMVN, Local sight scenes were ok which included chauli ki jali and old Shiv Mandir etc.
Next morning we checked out from same hotel at 11:45 am and moved towards Binsar. After doing 3~4 hrs. Driving reached to Binsar gate where they charged 250Rs./ Car and 150 rs. / Person and finally entered in to Binsar area for KMVN hotel again and which was 10 Km away from that gate. Road condition was not so good in last 2~3 km but we were exited as started imagin to reach in deep forest area and we were not so wrong when we saw the location of hotel which was situated at beauti fully location at almost extreme end of hill. Temperature was as same as mukteshwar. Same evening we visited to Zero point and enjoyed sun set which was actually the extreme end of Hill and just 2 KM away from KMVN guest house and could’t find any wild animal or bird in wild life sentuary which was actually the passing way from KMVN to Zero point and we were told that need to be awaked early morning to watch the animals but dropped the idea to awaked at our own time. Quality of break fast and dineer was better than average and they do not serve non veg due to norms of wild life sentuary and in morning they do serve bed tea at 6:00~6:30 am and two bucket of hot water to bath before 7:30~8:00 am. Electricity remains between 6:30 ~ 9:00 pm and there after candle is only the light provision. No room service, no TV so better to keep indooor/ out door games. No local market, petrol pump and restaurent in 15`20 km range. Next morning we started for jageshwar temple at 9:15 am which was 65 km from KMVN guest house and it was worth to go over their as temples were litrlally unique and approx. 1300 years old there after we back to our hotel at binsar at 5:30 in evng. Next morning we started back for delhi. As per my opinion better to visit after rain or in winter to enjoy weather, overall it was nice trip and it’s worth to go once.....
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: As there is no such options are available hence recomending the food provided by KMVN - Mukteshwar and Binsar.
Activities & things to do: Driving in hills, Relax and Walk.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Better go by your own car if can drive in hills, else Delhi to Kathgodam trains are available.”

A quiet village is also present in the place, which is associated with the legend of...
