Zero Point at Binsar

The most recommended place in the Binsar area is Zero point which is located inside the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary. The view point gives a glimpse of 300 KMs of the mighty Himalayan range. We were in time to see the mountains before clouds blocked the view for us. One need to walk inside the sanctuary for a kilometer & half to reach the point.

Though we didn�t get to see any wild animals, we heard a leopard’s roar couple of times somewhere from deep inside the sanctuary. The wildlife sanctuary is situated around 25KMs north of Almora.

That night we planned to go camping in the mountains. The place zeroed in was couple of kilometers from the resort. Camping in the wild is not new to me as I�ve gone camping few times before. But this time it was different & completely sophisticated. When we reached the camp site, the tents were ready, and so was the camp fire. We sat around the fire on that cold night talking away late in the night with discussion varying from topic to topic. It was pretty cold in the mountains and we had to warm our front and back sides after every few miniutes. After finishing off the dinner & some more talking, we surrendered to the sleep.
