This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.
There are very few places to stay actually inside the wonderful Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary - but this idyllic spot is one of them. In the village of Dalar, which has only ten families and no road access, Santosh Joshi and his family have created two simple but well-appointed guest houses, one sleeping 4 and the other 2. Each guest house is self-contained, with kitchen, sitting room, and bedrooms, running hot and cold water, modern wc, and electricity.

The space
santosh joshi and his family have created two simple but well-appointed guest houses, one sleeping 4 and the other 2. Each guest house is self-contained, with kitchen, sitting room, and bedrooms, running hot and cold water, modern wc, and electricity. There are views from the village of Nanda Devi and the Himalayan range. Meals can be prepared oneself in the guest house, or provided by the Joshi family (who also offer lessons in Kumaon cooking). santosh joshi is a qualified guide, with expert knowledge of birds and other wildlife found in the sanctuary (including leopard, porcupine, mountain goats and wild boar). He also has deep knowledge of walking trails. His English is fluent. Access to Dalar is by taxi transfer from Kathgodam, then a short, gentle 1.5 km trail from the road.

These rentals are very popular with guests wishing to visit Binsar, and with those looking for a quiet retreat to practice yoga or meditation.
