Zero Point at Binsar

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 a 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 a couple of kilometers from the resort. Camping in the wild is not new to me, as I have gone camping a few times before. But this time it was different and 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 into 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 minutes. After finishing off the dinner & some more talking, we surrendered to the sleep.

  1. I love the second picture with the silhouette of the person.
    I need to go back and read your other reports to find out where Binsar is and plan a trip there. That campsite sounds great.
