History and Culture
Binsar has a rich, diverse and fascinating history that can be traced back to the ancient times. Binsar was the summer capital of the Chand Dynasty that ruled over the Kumaon region between the 7th and 18th centuries. The rulers of Chand Dynasty, the Chand Raj Kings, visited Binsar in summers to enjoy the pleasant weather and peaceful scenery amidst the hills and mountains in this quiet town.
Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary serves as a habitat for the rare animals, birds and flower species. Since the place is wrapped up in thick foliage, it is undoubtedly the best place for experiencing adventurous hiking, camping and nature walks. One can go on long treks in the clean air, amidst the misty mountain trails, towering Oaks and Rhododendrons. Binsar is a formation of sleepy hamlets amidst orchards, silver streams and green meadows. The blanket of green hangs all around - rocks covered with unusual moss and ferns, flowers and shrubs - foliage sprouting out of every conceivable nook and corner of the hillside.
Binsar has excellent weather conditions throughout the year; however, the best time to visit Binsar is from October to March.
