Being on my toes, heading on a trip without knowing the destination, and overcoming challenges, that is exactly what travel means to me. And so, my weekend escape to Binsar with my office friends was another opportunity for living life the way I love. While it was an incredible experience, what made it more memorable are the unique things to do in Binsar that all of us did together.
Having absolutely no idea about Binsar, except that this offbeat town has the steepest and curviest roads en route, was enough to fuel our wanderlust and make us escape to this wonderful offbeat hilly destination.
Since we finalized our destination at the last moment, we were looking up for someone to help us plan our whole trip. And then fortunately, TravelTriangle came to our rescue for the trip planning and booking process. Thanks to their Facebook ads, I got an idea about their Binsar tour packages, post which I immediately got in touch with them. With perfect planning and management, they added more thrill to our suddenly planned short vacay!

Here’s everything we did in Binsar for rejuvenating our minds:
1. Stayed in the lap of nature, at Binsar Eco Camp Resort
Imagine thousands of lush green trees, spectacular view of the mountains around, and a sweet little home in between – that is exactly what Binsar Eco Camp was. Situated some 30 kilometers away from the town, Binsar Eco Camp Resort turned out to be an ideal retreat for a refreshing holiday.
Upon reaching the resort on Day 1, what came as a surprise to us initially were the absence of ACs and fans, but the weather did justify that eventually. Their hospitable behavior and facilities ensured that we had the best time and warm homely experience.
2. Captured every moment, and all the memories
Of all the things to do in Binsar, if there’s anything one shouldn’t miss out on, it’s photography. My love for the same made it irresistible for me to not capture anything around. The trees, the curvy roads, clear sky, the sun, and everything else ahead of my camera’s lens was worth capturing.

In the middle of all this, we joked around, caught up on great conversations, and did a lot of crazy things together. Well, it’s rightly said, good companions have the magic of converting a trip into a holiday, and mine with my friends became an incredible one.
3. Admired the sunset
Sunrise and sunset are two things any nature admirer dies to witness when he or she is in the heart of the hills. My situation was no different. And so, I successfully managed to watch the sunset on the evening of day 1. The view was magical, the ambience was soothing, and the vibes were too positive.
After all the late night chatting and chilling, I hardly slept and got ready to witness the sunrise too at 5:30 AM on day 2. Unfortunately, all I could capture was clouds since the weather didn’t help much.
4. Trekked through the rolling hills
Trekking is one of the top things to do in Binsar, and even when we knew we were short on time, we managed to experience a bit of it. All of us trekked to a point half a kilometer away from the resort, and it all proved to be worthwhile.

The lush greenery on the dotted hills with a clear blue sky in the background was a breathtaking sight. We broke free from all the work stress and jumped with joy like kids.
5. Enjoyed the warmth of the bonfire over good music
A bonfire adds spark to one’s evening in the hills, and what makes it even better is good music. Sitting under the sky studded with stars, we unwound and made the most of those calming moments.
Overall, it was an amazing and unforgettable break for all of us. We giggled, captured, gorged, listened to music, reminisced, and indulged in a lot of surreal experiences.
