Last weekend we headed to the hills of Binsar in Uttrakhand state of India. The plan was to spend 3 days in Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary and we chose to stay in KMVN hotel, which is in the middle of the wildlife sanitary and on one of the highest peaks in Binsar. This Photo Journey shares more about our experience of KMVN and some interesting facts/tips.
While the beginning of June saw a slowdown as far as travel was concerned, things picked up a bit towards the end. After extensive research, we settled upon Binsar as our next travel destination. We chose to stay in the KMVN Tourist Rest House inside the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary and the next three days were some of the most memorable days of our lives. Without power and cellphone connectivity, we were compelled to look at other forms of entertainment, such as trekking, birding, jungle walks, and of course chatting with each other and playing board games. And in doing all this, we realized how much we have actually been missing in our daily lives.
While in cities or even when we are travelling to places that have internet connectivity, most of our time is spent fiddling with our various devices, updating statuses on social media, and in general staying connected with everything except with the place we are at, with the people who are physically present around us, and most importantly with ourselves. And in the process we do not realize that we are losing precious moments with our loved ones. During our trip to Binsar, we realized that this needs to be corrected immediately. We will soon be sharing tips on how to stay connected with people around us while also staying up to date on social media.

Sattal is another interesting place in Kumaun. I have been there thrice. My first trip to Sattal is most memorable one. It was 2006 when I visited Sattal first. That time, we stayed in camps on the other side of lake. This PHOTO JOURNEY shares more about Sattal, things to do and experiences of staying in camps.
Recently one of my fellow-trekkers shared this article form Times of India, which say that Shrikhand Mahadev Trek is one of the most difficult Pilgrimage routes. And soon this trek is going to open for everyone. Although I have shared about the trek multiple times, but this post is dedicated to trekkers or pilgrims, who are planning to go to Shrikhand Mahadev this year. This PHOTO JOURNEY would try to share some of the tips for planning it better, because a better plan can make your experience much better.
