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.

the best place to re energize yourself.. All hotels provide service but very few provide service with love and hearty caring nature, dunagiri retreat is one of them, during stay felt like homely caring atmosphere with privacy and suitable for any age group of person.Thanks once again to entire Dunagiri retreat team.

The three of us (an Indian, American and Frenchman) came here to experience calmness and nature. The entire site and experience is so 'natural' that it transports you to another world. Our host Piyush was (is) par excellence and really looks after you. Time stands still while one can be a part of nature, be it the fruit trees, fresh organic produce to be had each day, yoga, treks and understanding nature and our true relationship with it. Always looking forward to coming back.

I had the pleasure of staying at Dunagiri Retreat recently with several of my childhood friends for a reunion. It was an excellent experience - starting with very warm and welcoming hospitality of the owner, Piyush, along with his staff. They made us feel like we were visiting family and were their personal guests. Facility itself is in a beautiful area surrounded by majestic mountains. It is set up to provide optimal privacy to guests with an excellent choice of rooms ranging from completely separate cottages to a room in the main lodge. All rooms offer a great view of surrounding forested hills. Staff prepared fresh, vegetarian meals which were really excellent. They even arranged a special cake for us to celebrate our reunion. Piyush accompanied us on nearby hikes to

I had been travelling in kamoun and Garhwal a lot but this place is out of the world!.It is not only beautiful but has some spiritual power.Last week I visited this place with my friends ..Piyush, the owner, told me that first day you might not like the place as much but as you will stay you will start falling in love with it and that was exactly what happened. I got so enthralled with this place that now when I look back and think, I wonder why we keep on running for material pleasures which can only give us temporary satisfaction. Real happiness eludes us .I came back relaxed and rejuvenated .Dunagiri I love you! Some useful suggestions- Trekking to nearby places is a must, stay here minimum for three or four nights.. Lots of wildlife, no t.v, no phones, no newspaper

For an incredibly beautiful experience in Northern India ... go directly to the Dunagiri Resort☺️! We have visited India for the first time in October 2014. The first week was spent at the Dunagiri Resort for a wonderful week course of Qi gong. The resort and our hosts, Piyush and Katy, with their warm welcome, charming and nurturing environment offered us an exceptional experience throughout our stay. The beautiful natural surrounding of the area proved to be a unique natural support for all our activities A special thanks to Piyush and Katy, for their kindness and patience for our many questions...and needs, their knowledgable sharing on so many subjects, not the least of the country, its traditions, history and deep comprehension of the sacred aspects of the Himalaya area.
