Few places are left on our planet where we can enjoy tourism experiences in such a pristine and tranquil environment as Dunagiri Retreat – a small, exclusive country retreat found in the lush Himalayan foothills of Uttarakhand, India. Nestled in the hills at 7400’ Dunagiri Retreat overlooks dramatic deep rural valleys and cloud covered Himalayan peaks. Guests stay amidst ancient forests, terraced hills, fascinating history, rich local culture and captivating natural beauty.

Dunagiri’s guest houses, private and serene, are situated on a stunningly beautiful estate bordered by peaceful, dense oak forests. Surrounding the guest houses are charming organic herb and vegetable gardens, fruit trees and quiet sitting areas, all with breathtaking vistas. Our vision is to offer our guests a space where reflection and refreshment of the body and soul come, with each taking away what they need from the experience. Dunagiri is intended for nature lovers who value peace, calmness and appreciate the natural grandeur of their surroundings.

Accommodations at Dunagiri Retreat are comprised of two lovingly restored guest houses located within expansive gardens. Minimalist by design, the comfortable and stylish rooms offer our guests an elegant yet relaxed ambiance… perfect for you to snuggle up with your favorite book, to sit with a cup of our special herbal teas or to gently withdraw from the outer world into your essential self.

Dunagiri offers something for all guests. For those who yearn to get away from the city heat, to relax for a short holiday, explore the area’s spiritual heritage, or trek the local hills and enjoy nature, Dunagiri’s tranquil setting is a most refreshing and restorative solution. Guests from across the world are welcomed to join us for one of our Dunagiri Tours, where they will be immersed in a richly layered experience, exploring the beauty of nature, history, culture, people and places of India, Uttarakhand and of the Dunagiri area.

Believing firmly in sustainable, green tourism, we strive to ensure our retreat’s natural and cultural environment is managed and operated according to highest possible standards, practices and guidelines in sustainable tourism. Good environmental ethics allow us to maintain the availability of resources such that future travelers are not inhibited from enjoying the same experience. Our guiding philosophy is environmental conservation and biodiversity protection, intergenerational equity and cultural heritage preservation. Of great importance at Dunagiri, is to offer respect and empowerment to the local people from the small surrounding villages. Indeed, exploring and sharing the deep understanding and pride the local people have for their heritage and the land they love adds much to what makes the experience at Dunagiri truly unique.

Join us. We hope that a visit to Dunagiri is an experience like no other, creating a journey for mind, body and soul, which will stay with our guests forever.
