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.

Visited here last October with Jane Craggs school of yoga, we spent a night in old Delhi then took the night train were we picked up and taken up the mountain to dunagiri ! Wonderful welcome, fantastic vegan food, and the most magical views and walks to hidden places of worship. A great experience, although I was only there a week I felt totally re charged and energised

Like most of you reading this article, I'm quite fond of traveling - especially discovering new places, not the popular / touristy ones, rather little adventurous. Recently stayed at Dunagiri Retreat for 2 nights and 3 days with my family (including my 2 year old kid) and we had a fantastic experience. Whilst the remoteness of the place offers a 360 degree view of the pristine landscape, the amazing team at the resort would not let anyone feel the remoteness with their superb service and food (great home cooked food). The other real amazing stuff about the place - it plays an important role in the ecosystem of the nearby villages, besides some employment opportunities and getting tourist to the place, teaching kids free of charge, taking initiative in providing medical aid to

I spend a lot of time travelling in Uttrakhand, majorly in the Garhwal side of it. Rains are my favorite time because it brings out the best in the mountains. The river run at their wildest, every stream has water and greenery and beauty can never be captured in words or pictures. What happened in and around Ganga this year is heart breaking. Since I could not go that side, so I changed directions and went towards the Kumaon side of Uttrakhand and to my greatest pleasure, I discovered Dunagiri, How do I explain this place, completely raw, amazingly green and so less travelled that u can not hear any thing other than the birds and the crickets. Such calmness and serenity. More you can find online about Dunagiri. We stayed with Piyush and though he was not around, his staff (He

I recently visited Dunagiri Retreat with 5 other friends and on the whole it was an amazingg trip! I think some of the most uniquely significant things about Dunagiri Retreat would include its beautiful architecture (which is so close to nature, with the use of locally available stones and wood, and it feels as if every peach tree and rose creeper is perfect in its setting), breath-taking views (like the sunrise, sunsets, the mountain valley and the extensive green cover), Piyush uncle and the entire staffs caring and warm hospitality and absolutely delicious mouth-watering Indian food! Activities around the place that we enjoyed were the long and short treks to the Dunagiri temple, Pandu Kholi and various caves. The bonfires at night and the night safari made the trip even
