This is a great option for people looking for a comfortable, basic and practical stay with very good service. The first thing that sets this place on higher stead is the view which is just splendid (you even get a great view of Nanda Devi - India's second highest peak at 25000 feet). As for the accommodation and services, the... More

This is not really a hotel but a improved mountain hut with splendid view. I wouldn't recommend it for a comfortable family stay, and at 6500 it is expensive even by Australian/NZ standards. By basic, I mean the temperature averaged about 8C - inside. Heating was minimal. Its clean, you have hot water as long as there's no power outage,... More

Dear Sir, Thanks for the kind words, we appreciate your feedback and humbly accept our limitations at the lodge. However we meekly protest against the amount and prices mentioned in your note as it portrays our entire region in bad light. Here is our point wise response. Room pricing: You made online booking for a 4 bed room on 31st... More

Just finished a whirlwind tour of Auli during 23rd-26th Dec'14 and my god what a voyage that it was! My two little children (5&10) and 72 year old mom liked it alike. The hospitality matched the best of star facilities in India particularly because there was a personal, human face to it. You are so assured when you learn that... More

12 hour long drive to Auli from Nainital was picturesque, beautiful yet painful due to the twists and turns but once we reached Auli @6.30 PM, all the fatigue simply vanished. Devi darshan lodge is meant for people who can do without 3-5 star amenities. Its the best place to be. Unbound hospitality, home-cooked food coupled with its beautiful location... More

First visit to India & Himalaya, and what a place to stay, long journey from Dehra Dun was well worth when we arrived at Auli, quite a drive up hill from Joshimath, so you are at a good hight for the views of Nanda Devi, plus excellent waking in the area (up hill), via ski lift if you what to...

I travelled to Uttarakhand because it is a stark contrast from the mundane, concrete jungle of Bombay. Within Uttarakhand I visited Auli and in particular, this incredible lodge 'Devi Darshan'. I have travelled across the globe extensively but I must admit that none of my lodgings have enthralled me the way 'Devi Darshan' has. The view was extremely picturesque, the... More

I was traveling through India, and desperately wanted to escape to the Himalayas before the monsoons made their way north. A friend in Delhi provided me with Dr. Kainthola's contact info, and he was able to secure the necessary permits, and plan the logistics for me in a very short amount of time, thus making a mountain escape possible. The... More

The beauty of this lodge is its location which makes the lodge unique in its own way. The lodge is situated in the laps of beautiful mountains of auli . The lodge offers modern facilities while maintaining the national spirit, allowing us to experience the traditional garwaal atmosphere. I must say that devi darshan is the best choice for educational... More

I lived at Devi Darshan for about two weeks while doing a study abroad in the area. The Mountain Shepherds were all extremely cordial, knowledgeable, and extremely fun. The views from the lodge were absolutely breathtaking. Compared to most of the guest houses I stayed in while traveling India, this was among the most comfortable and by far, the cleanest.... More
