About the property:
Dunagiri Retreat offers freedom from the madness and pressures of modern life. We offer a space where reflection and refreshment of the soul take place as people leave their busy routines behind. Meant for nature lovers and spiritual seekers who value peace, quiet and appreciate the natural grandeur of their surroundings, your stay with us will leave you refreshed, renewed and uplifted. Inspired by the ideal that it’s love and not money that makes the world go around, Piyush Kumar founded Dunagiri Retreat in 2005 after leaving a lucrative career at the World Bank. He wanted to create a different kind of resort—one which benefits the ecology and the local population as much as it does the visitor. As a result, Dunagiri Retreat is entirely served by the villagers of this area; everyone working here is a farmer and a resident of the three villages that surround us. And together—visitor and villager alike. Dunagiri Retreat offers a "rustic-deluxe" experience—modern facilities within very remote and rural surroundings in the Himalayan wilderness. While maintaining a close relationship with nature, your comfort is our utmost concern. Our hospitality is genuine and refined—yet down to earth. Pure deshi. Right down to the fresh cow’s milk, naturally sweet from its diet of mountain herbs.
