A favourite of stars like Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Ishaan Khatter, Mary Budden Estate is a luxe property nestled inside Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary in Uttarakhand. It is the perfect destination for avid birders—their Hodgson’s Way trail guided by the estate’s hosts traces the path taken by a government official of the British era who was instrumental in identifying a variety of Himalayan birds. There are four-legged residents in the sanctuary too—you might spot the Himalayan black bear or the Indian red fox on your treks. Once you’ve had your fill of the estate’s wild offerings, unwind in the lodge that is a take on a typical colonial cottage.
Address: Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, P.O. Ayarpani District, Almora, Uttarakhand - 263601.
