Perfect Vacation Itinerary to Binsar and Almora - Car Driving Directions on Map

Updated on July 11, 2011

Friends, as promised, I am back today with two new dream destinations and this time they are Binsar and Almora. Binsar is located in the Kumaon region of Uttaranchal State of India. Binsar has not one or two but many locations on offer for the people who visit this little and less commercialized place as compared to other popular hill stations of India. Also, Almora is another tourist attraction near Binsar which will help in formulating and making a perfect car travel itinerary to these dream places. Binsar is a little hill station in the Uttaranchal state at a height of 2412 meters which is approximately 7000 feet from mean sea level. This is the reason why it gets really chilly in winters. It is interesting to note that Binsar has the famous Binsar Bird Sanctuary which hosts around 200 national and international bird species making Binsar a bird watcher’s delight. Binsar also has a famous temple dedicated to Lord Shiva called as “Bineshwar Mahadev Temple”.

There are three major attractions in Binsar that can be added in your car travel itinerary to Uttaranchal and those are Binsar Bird Sanctuary and Bineshwar Mahadev Temple as mentioned above and archaeological spots of megalithic age. As this hill station is not much commercialized, there are a very few “popular” kind of places to see but for the very same reason, it has plenty of places to discover which are unexplored yet. Binsar is loaded with lush green trees and twisty roads, so you can enjoy long walks with your partner here. You can also enjoy music or simply stop by corners of hills and indulge yourself in clicking the panoramic view of the great Himalayas with your digicam. So whatever you are, whether you are an active trekker, a bird watcher, or simply a nature lover, Binsar is the place for you. Interestingly Binsar has also been a home to some delicious fruits of sweetest varieties.

Perfect Vacation Itinerary to Binsar and Almora – Car Driving Directions on Map

Day 1: Leave at 8:00 a.m. in the morning from Delhi to drive towards Badarpur Border. Have some refreshment near Simbhaoli Sugar Mills or Gajraula. Now drive towards Moradabad. Have lunch at first stop on NH 24 highway towards Rampur, though you can also have it at Chaupara or Bazpur on the same highway but it can be a little late for the lunch. After having lunch, start driving towards Mallital near Nainital and join State Highway 37 for Almora which is just 35 kms from Binsar, so you can have dinner in Binsar. Now if it is wintertime, book a hotel and sleep well through the night. If it is summer, book a hotel and go outside and click some photos of Binsar.

Day 2: Get up early in the morning and walk on the roads of Binsar, check some shops, click some pics of mountains, etc. Then come back to hotel and ask the hotel for driving directions to visit Binsar Bird Sanctuary, Bineshwar Mahadev Temple, and places of archaeological importance in Binsar. By the time, you will cover these, it will be late evening time, so get back to the hotel, have dinner, and sleep tight through the night.

Day 3: Next day, check out more of Binsar, meet some village people, talk with them, check out some trekking routes and if you have time, go for a trekking trip in mountains near Binsar. If not, you can do that afterwards in Almora. I will tell you how. Now check out from the hotel, get in your car, and leave Binsar for Almora only 35 kms from there. Book a room or two in Almora (rooms are easily available here) according to the number of people, leave your luggage and ask for the way to Katramal and Chitai temples in Almora. You can do trekking for visiting both these temples. Doing this has triple benefits, as you are visiting a place of worship (God is happy), having fun with friends (making yourself happy), and working out your legs (making your body feel happy) so it’s happy all the time. Now when you will return from the trekking trip, you will feel really hungry and it will be evening already. Remember to click pics of evening at Almora also and let me know. Go to the hotel and sleep tight again.

Day 4: Wake up in the morning, check out some nearby places at Almora. Check out from the hotel, get back in the car, and start driving towards Delhi on the same route in the opposite direction. You will reach Delhi border in late night or early morning.

Now check out the map for the road route to both these beautiful hill stations Binsar and Almora in Uttaranchal. Let me know it is not a perfect vacation itinerary to these places.
