In the Binsar Sanctuary (alt 1650 – 2500m), you will have the opportunity to walk along forest trails, through rhododendron, oak, pine and cedar woodland, to reach broad cultivated terraces as you come close to the village. Whilst walking, look out for pine marten, monkeys, barking deer and mountain goat.

The Binsar Sanctuary is home to deer, wild boar, porcupine, pine martens, langur monkeys and several breeding pairs of leopard, while birds include various species of woodpecker, eagles and vultures.
