While planning a weekend getaway to Almora, Zero Point Almora should be one of those places which should be on your must-visit list.
Zero Point Almora is situated within the Jhandi Hills of Kumaon. It is at an approximate distance of 24 km from Almora. Also, this is one of my personal recommendations as well.
If you wish to get a real-time visual experience of my trip from Delhi to Almora, you can check out my playlist which is named ‘Almora- Uttarakhand’ on my YouTube channel Go Bro Ride.
Also, in order to specifically watch my video focusing on Zero Point Almora, you can check out the video titled “2600 years old Kasar Devi Temple Magnetic Field”.
I have tried to capture my journey from this road trip along with my family through this vlog. Upon reaching the destination, we had to undergo a trek which had a rough path but a beautiful and mesmerizing view to compensate for the tiring trek.
The trekking path was a bit long, around 2 km, but it was not very challenging as it revolved around a straight path. The trek basically begins from Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary Tourist Rest House and goes to the peak of the wildlife sanctuary within which it is situated.
In order to go through the path, you will have to pay a fee of ₹150 per person. Alongside, if you wish to go through your car, you will have to pay an additional amount of ₹250 per vehicle.
The trek begins after an approximate distance of 9 km from the entry point of the sanctuary.
Zero Point Almora is basically the highest point of the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary Almora which offers a 360-degree view of the Himalayan beauties namely Kedarnath, Shivling, Trishul and the group of Nanda Devi peaks.
You can enjoy this view through a man-made watchtower which is situated at the top of the mountain. If you wish to travel to Zero Point Almora, the best time for the same would be between the months of October and November.
You can visit via all three modes of transportation. The nearest railway station turns out to be Kathgodam and the nearest airport is Pantnagar airport which is around 132 km
away from Binsar.
Further, after visiting Zero Point Almora, I along with my family visited the famous Kasar Devi temple.
