At 8,000ft, within view of the snow-clad peaks of the Himalaya, the Dunagiri Retreat may seem like yet another mountain resort but it isn’t. The lure it throws out isn’t luxury — the retreat comprises three beautiful restored houses but the rooms are minimalist. It promises spectacular scenery and delivers with mountains, forests, orchards. But the real punch is its spiritual history and energy. Dunagiri — or Dronagiri — has been the seat of a long series of spiritual masters and seekers; the surrounding hillside is still home to several ashrams, temples and ‘mystic spots’. It’s also said to be the birthplace of Kriya Yoga. The estate keeps in touch with its spiritual side in every way, including serving only organic vegetarian food and not serving liquor. This is where you come if you’re looking for a truly spiritual retreat rather than merely a lovely holiday in the hills. Because though there is much to look out at, here you must also look within.
