There are many fun and unique experiences that you can have. Binsar also has many offbeat places with mesmerizing views of hills, lovely orchards, streams, and meadows.

 

Visit the Katarmal Surya Temple

The Katarmal Surya Temple in Binsar is a must-see. This temple is about 17 kilometres from Almora and is at an altitude of 2,116 meters. It takes around 1.5 hours to drive from Binsar to this magnificent sun temple, and we strongly suggest you visit. The temple was constructed in the 9th century and is still in excellent condition. The architecture of this temple looks historical, and you can see the tranquil Koshi river from the region around the temple if you explore the area around.

 

A tour of Binsar’s lovely villages

The villages of Binsar have a rustic charm to them, and you must pay a visit to these modest locations during your tour. The people in these places are warm and friendly. Behsudi is one of these communities, with a diversified bird population and attractive forest paths. You can see various birds that are now difficult to sight in a city, such as bulbuls. If you prefer being outside, a river trip with a local guide is an excellent way to visit the hamlet, as it would be a great educational and refreshing hike for you.

 

Explore the Binsar wildlife sanctuary

Binsar wildlife sanctuary is known for its beautiful panoramas and countless types of birds. The perfect time to visit this place would be in the early hours of the day. The sanctuary’s lofty pine and oak trees are still shrouded in mist early in the morning. The first rays of the early sun filtering through the canopy are a joy to behold.
