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... More

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... More

Imagine you have a friend who has a bungalow somewhere in Kumaon region. The place is full of stories from Sat, Treta and Dwapar yuga. You have stories from Hanuman, Ashrams of Shuka and Garg muni, a 'gupt' vaishnav shakti peeth - the only one other than Vaishno devi at Jammu, you have a cave where Pandavas were supposed to...

We traveled to the resort during end December, we were the only guests staying at the resort. Have to admit that staying with Piyush and Kathy was truly wonderfully, these guys are amazing hosts and the hotel staff are equally warm and loving. Since we visited the resort in December, it was quite cold but Piyush took care of our... More

We went there for 10 days with a group of 29 in mid-April. They absolutely were not ready for such a large group. Most of the cabin didn't have electricity or running water for several days. When in India, a working toilet is kind of mandatory as people get sick easily. And buckets of warm water had to be asked... More

A friend and I stayed here for a couple days in August 2014 in the midst of a chaotic tour of India. It was a highlight of our trip! It is very remote and hard to get to, but the drive is completely worth it! (bring anti-nausea meds if you are prone to car sickness.) Great scenery, wonderful hosts, and... More

Travelled for my honeymoon in July 2013. It was mesmerizing. For us to start our new lives, this was a really wonderful place. We enjoyed every bit of our stay there. It's tough to describe the experience in words. Please visit this place, I am sure anyone who loves the Himalaya will love this place.

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... More
