Binsar Trek

  Duration : 04 Days
Destination : Delhi - Pauri - Peethsain - Binsar - Dudhatoli - Haridwar - Delhi.
Location : Uttaranchal
Season : Winter (Dec - Feb)
Grade : Easy.

A perfect winter trek offering pure pristine wilderness. Apart from the shepherds and a few locals not many people walk this trail. The Binsar temple where we camp at the end of Day 2 is a Shiva Temple and the deity is highly revered all across Garhwal and Kumaon. The walk from here on goes through spectacular forests still pretty much untouched by humans. The wide pasturelands of Dudhatoli is the favourite grazing ground for the locals and commands a panoramic view of the snow clad Himalayan peaks on one side and the low mountains on the other.
