29-March to 1-April-2015, Trishul room

Binsar Forest Retreat exceeded our expectations.  The accommodation was outstanding – all beautifully decorated with comfortable beds, a warm and welcoming fireplace, big glass windows and doors opening onto a patio with “to die for views of the surrounding forest and Himalayas”.  What more could anyone ask for?

Much thought had gone into the preparation of the tasty food which we greatly appreciated.

The walks through the flowering rhododendron, oak and pine forests were spectacular.  We were delighted to see many birds there that we had not seen throughout the rest of India.  As well, with the assistance of our local village naturalist guide we saw barking deer, ghoral and wild boar.  The guide was extremely knowledgeable and we would have surely missed much without him.

We would highly recommend a stay in Binsar Forest Retreat – such a pretty, peaceful place with friendly, welcoming managers and staff.
