we went to stay in almora , we decided to shift out immediately since we wanted to stay in a resort not in a lodge.
our luck we could get accommodation in binsar retreat. it is little away from almora , the road was not bad . the retreat is just outside the forest area. we loved everything about this retreat. there is no electricity , mobile phones may not disturb you.
tented accommodation .but you have nothing to complain every other need is taken care of. rooms are clean , bed is well made. food was tasty . more than all this the staff especially mr. rana were always available to care of all our need .
you can walk inside the forest, walk to sunset point ,temple etc. absolutely wonderful place to spend a peaceful holiday.
