Zero Point-A glimpse of mighty Himalaya.

Zero point is the highest vantage point located in the premises of Binsar sanctuary. To reach there one has to walk through a 2 km narrow jungle road as it is accessible only by foot. As the name describes, Zero point is the end of the road that offers a 360-degree panoramic view of mighty ranges of Himalaya that includes Nanda Devi and Kedarnath Mountain.

As you walk through the woods, you may find the jungle studded with trees like Oak and Buransh (Rhododendron). You may even spot some wildlife creatures and beautiful birds on the way so keep your binoculars and camera handy. The view from Zero point which is located at a height of 2400 meters is fantastic. The sight of snow gently places on the top of mountains and the cool breeze caressing your face is enough to Detox the chaos that you have held within and lose yourself in the serenity of nature.
Zero point is a part of Binsar wildlife sanctuary, but there is less wildlife present here now. Take a guided trek inside this wildlife sanctuary to explore the nature around this prestine jungle. You can get to view trees of Oak, Buransh(Rhododendron).

Special in Zero Point: Visit Zero point at early morning to witness a beautiful sunrise.
