Binsar was probably the best offbeat Hillscape trip that I had in the last few years !! And Binsar Eco-Camp at Dhaulachina is possibly the icing on the cake. Location is superb, rooms are awesome and service is terrific. The cook Ramesh has some awesome hilly dishes up his sleeve, the travel guide Nandan is an amazing companion full of humour and energy and the owners Mr. Mehra are champions of Hospitality and care. Besides taking great pride in showing you around, they are great botanists themselves and will take time explaining the herbs and the wildlife there. They even organize Safari, and should you be lucky, you may spot a leopard !!. We had an amazing fortune when the clouds parted after the rains had stunning views of the panoramic Himalayas up in the north-west Nanda Devi, Chaukhamba, pancha-chuli, Nanda khot !! Snow capped and stunning in mightiness !!. Also make a point to visit the Jageshwar group of temples- the splendid ride is just beyond description !!
The stay at Binsar Eco camp was a very homely experience. The location of the property is good allowing excellent views of the mountains. A short walk up takes you to the scenic view of the Himalayan ranges. The property is very basic which makes it more homely. Rooms are neat and clean. The staff is very helpful and courteous. Ravi Mehra who runs the property is a very good host and company for treks and bird watching. Food was very good with homemade taste. Overall it was a very quiet and relaxing time that my husband and me had at Binsar Eco Camp. Good choice for a short sweet holiday.
Location of the hotel was very good. Staff behaviour was very nice and very polite. This hotel was conveniently located. It is very far from the bus stand. Room was very good and it was neat, clean, spacious and well maintained. There was Mountain View from the room. Housekeeping service was also very good. The appearance of the hotel like interior and exterior was very good. There was no delay during check-in and check-out. A service provided by the hotel was very good. Food was very good in terms of quality and test and they provide only veg food. Swimming pool was not there, but other activities were conducted by the hotel for kids. It was value for money hotel and I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers. It was a relaxing trip .
I don't know what heaven looks like; Binsar comes to my mind every time I think of it !. If you want to unwind yourself, relax, sooth your senses, be in the midst of nature- then Binsar is the place to be. Binsar is a wildlife/Bird sanctuary located at a distance of approximately 126 km from Kathgodam, Uttarakhand (the closest railway station to the place). For those who are familiar to Kumaon, its 33 km from Almora. It takes around 45 minutes to reach there from the main town, Almora . . With Pine at lower end, oak and rhododendron at higher altitude, you will find hanging mosses and colourful flowers adorning the slopes. Panoramic view of the Kumaon Himalayas, a stretch of almost 300 km, is simply mesmerizing. Read on: open the windows of your imagination! You can hear the birds chirping. Its quiet, its green and with every deep breath you take-the clear air begins to sooth your senses !. Rising above the clouds! Your wish to ever stay in a place like this is made true by the Binsar Eco Camp ( make sure its not binsar Eco Resort, there are many with this name but the best is Binsar Eco Camp near Daulchina). A Wooden Cottage style camp with beautiful hills and trees around, it will feel as if you are just in the lap of hills, Ravi the Owner of this camp will take best care of you, all the food cooked there is organic home grown, just take a little trek along the camp and you can see the clear Himalayan ranges, the tranquility, beauty and quietness will make you fall in love with this place and of course the warm hospitality of the Owner and his knowledge about the place, food and everything is impeccable. What all can you do here? Well, in the intervening you can trek, meditate, yoga and see the sunrise from behind the Kumaon hills, enjoy the cold night in open with some born fire, music/guitar singing wine and good food There are places to visit around Binsar like temples and all but I suggest staying in the camp and enjoying the mother nature, if you love adventures there is no better place do to rock climbing, river crossing and if you want to be more adventurous you can do camping in the dense forests (beware of wild animals though). During the day you can also just laze around and relax, or spend time admiring the natural beauty around. In the afternoon, you can go for a walk around the resort in the forest or read a book and go bird watching and capture pictures of beautiful birds that we would never ever see in the cities The photographers would love this place and there is so much to capture. It is also a perfect place for people who love to write, paint or meditate and excellent for trekkers and those who like exploring. The place offers you so much that you won't even realize when the day has ended. A blissful experience you can't miss!
Last December (2015) I visited Eco Camp at Binsar, the serene hill station of Uttarakhand. Stayed at hotel Anandamoyee. Accommodation was good. They provided excellent service. Food was simply close to my mind. The nearby places were covered with deep pine forest. One can walk through the silent hill roads in the evening and have an overwhelming sunset at the mountain top. If you love the calmness of the Nature and longing for serenity of the Himalayas, I suggest you to spent a couple of days here in Anandamoyee Hotel at Eco Binsar. It is on your way to Almora from Kausani and comfortably motor-able.
Anticipating a great family holiday" experience and to get a much needed relief from the maddening heat in Delhi, we went to Binsar Eco Camp on 25th June 2014. The drive till Dhaulchhina was excellent with good quality roads and great surrounding views. We reached Dhaulchhina quite easily, thanks to the regular route guidance provided by the contact person at Binsar Eco Camp. It was raining and the overall atmosphere was clean and pleasant. The heart break started the moment we took the turn towards Binsar Eco Camp from dhaulchhina. The incline was steep road was broken (at most places non-existant) causing our car to slip and slide, any ways we managed to reach the property. There was no reception area/ no guest receiving area and when asked we were informed that since it's an Eco camp, no such things exist in the philosophy. The list grew further with the same philosophy - no room service, no running hot water, no television, poor lighting in the rooms, below-average rooms, washrooms. The entire place was an insect hub with insects of all sizes and shapes, needless to mention spiders which were every where in the room and outside. The restaurant was located on one side of the property and due to no room service, the guests had to go there for food. The dinner was served at 9 pm and food served was in sync with the Eco theme, (which was pure veg) including green salad, one dry vegetable, one gravy vegetable, dal, chapatis, rice. The restaurant area was also full of insects and we also saw few scorpions roaming around. The entire place was so scary that kids had to skip the dinner and slept empty stomach. We waited for the night to pass bye and left the place the very next morning. The people managing the show were told about the problem and were asked to give a rebate but they charged us full amount and were indifferent in their attitude.
