This is a place you should go to if you literally want to 'get away from it all'.....no TV, virtually no internet, erratic cell phone coverage, no Malls or markets, no town...yes it is in the middle of nowhere! Nor is it some fancy shmancy resort (note it's called Retreat, not a Resort) --it's pretty basic. Yes you have your... More

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.... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
