Homestays in Gaunap and Saatri Villages, Binsar
Are you looking for a long-term stay option in the mountains? A getaway from where you could continue working? These may just be the options for you!
Far from the madding crowds of the bustling cities of India. Plenty of nature all around you. Breathtaking vistas of the Himalayan peaks to mesmerize you. Read a book or even write one. Watch the sunrise through the windows of your room. Wake up to the chirping of birds. Do some bird-watching. Mingle with the villagers. Visit the local school. Be charmed by the curious, twinkling eyes of the of the village kids. Try your hand at farming. Visit the Binsar zero-point to catch a glimpse of the famed view of the mountain ranges. Or walk up to the village temple to get the same view. Go on short hikes if you will. Or just chill.
Gaunap and Saatri are a couple of charming Kumaoni villages nestled in the midst of rhododendron and pine forests of Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary in the Uttarakhand Himalayas, India. The Bora family would be pleased to host you. Accommodation includes comfortable rooms with the added luxury of attached western-style bathrooms (yes, it’s a luxury in these regions!).
These villages are only a short distance from the nearest road-head but light-years away from the “developed world”! Binsar is also home to scores of species of birds. It’s indeed a bird-watcher’s paradise.
