This is a thought that would embrace you for a lifetime if you have even once strolled through the hills of Binsar. When one seeks to find oneself, one “runs for the hills.” Binsar is a hill station tucked amidst the towering mountain peaks and adorned with the echoing vibrance and a quaint medley of colors.
The spotted surroundings, plush with oak and rhododendrons, are a welcoming sight. On sunny days, holy peaks like those of Kedarnath and Badrinath are visible from the village.
