A Binsar trek gives you the chance to walk through mesmerising realms, and get a taste of the native culture. It begins at Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, which harbours rich animal and plant life. Located at an average elevation of 7913 feet above sea level, it was established to conserve the shrinking forests of oak. Besides oak, the protected territory also contains thick jungles of pine and deodar trees, which provide home to numerous species of animals. Some of the main animals that you may see here are leopards, ghorals, musk deer, jungle cats and barking deer. Your trek will take you along picturesque mountain brooks, and lush pines and cedars. It will also give you an opportunity to camp in the forests amidst peaceful realms, and wake up to bewitching sunrises over snowy mountain peaks. Though the sanctuary is accessible throughout the year, the best time to come here is between October and March. The weather at that time is mostly clear with regular snowfall, making the place drape a resplendent white attire of snow.
