A Nature Retreat in a lush hill forest setting overlooking a dramatic rural landscape. At Dunagiri, you are completely in harmony with nature - distances seem infinite and heaven close. Silence speaks in a thousand tongues here - all calm, joyous and serene. Very few places are left on our planet where we can enjoy tourism experiences in such pristine, tranquil and calm environment amidst ancient forests. A spot of stunning natural splendor, being one with nature is easy to do at Dunagiri Nature Retreat. Its greatness lies not merely in its fascinating history and captivating beauty, it is rather the peaceful and spiritual atmosphere of this place that strikes the mind and brings peace to the soul. Known by various names such as Drongiri, Dronagiri and Doonagiri - a visit to Dunagiri is a holiday like no other; it is a journey into the innermost recesses of the soul, a re-discovery of the essence of being. Go for nature walks, treks in hills and wilderness, visit Cave of Mahavatar Babaji of Kriya Yoga mentioned in An Autobiography of a Yogi.

Dunagiri is a special place indeed. The experience will stay in my heart forever. It really is a trip of a lifetime and far surpassed my expectations in every way. I hope and pray I'll be able to return one day! Coming from the UK & after a long trip the welcoming hospitality we received was amazing. Piyush and Katy are simply beautiful people with warm, open hearts who care so much for the local area what they are doing here is amazing! Please keep doing it! Giving back to the local village via employment and giving us peace and serenity in the process... it's a small utopia in India. The retreat operates as a sustainable sharing economy which works on many levels! Dunagiri is stunning with the most serene views, flowers, birds & butterflies everywhere, mother nature at her

Retreat is a beautiful word when applied to Dunagiri. It is a place where you are nourished with beautiful food, carefully and lovingly prepared, stunning scenery, and a level of hospitality beyond anything I have ever experienced. My senses were reeling with joy. I feel humbled and amazed by my stay. I truly cannot fully express how wonderful it was. I went on a yoga holiday with Yoga Kula Leeds and I can only say that it was totally brilliant.

Went to Dunagiri Retreat as part of an organised Yoga retreat. Spent ten days here and could have stayed longer! Tranquil setting, delicious organic food and a wonderful host, Piyush. I stayed in a room at the top with an amazing view of the mountains and sunrise. Each day could be spent hiking, visiting temples, markets or simply staying amongst the beautiful cosmos in the peaceful silence of the retreat. Piyush puts money back into the community and deeply cares about the local people and the area. I don't usually go back somewhere twice, with the idea to experience somewhere new, but this place is an exception. Thank you Piyush, Katy and all of the staff for making it a wonderful time and memory!

Dunagiri Retreat is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. As a group of 12 we travelled from Yoga Kula Leeds, UK and held our Yoga retreat there. As one of the organisers I had to keep pinching myself.. I knew it was going to be good, as Dunagiri had come highly recommended to me, but I didn't realise it would be as absolutely beautiful in every way as it was. Piyush has created an visionary retreat for people to experience India -from the inside. His thoughtfulness and care for every aspect of our retreat was incredible and much appreciated. Everyone at Dunagiri has made our trip so special, our experience will remain one of happiest times of my life because of the people we met.. the delicious, fresh food that we ate - thanks to Panditji!

Dunagirir Retreat is an Eco yoga retreat, where heaven meets earth. We trek to cave of Mahaavtar Baba Ji. Words are but poor vehicle of thoughts, to describe the nature. Sun rise, Sunset everything was indescribable but you can only feel when you will be there, Be with your best friend - The Nature ! My sincere thanks to our host Piyush Ji, who is a real gem.
