The high lights of this trip

Sonapani

Flanked by pine forest on the right and rhodendron & oak forests on the left, stands the Himalayan village Sonapani, a retreat that offers timeless moments. Without televisions or phones to distract, there’s only music that prevails here, music of the cool mountain breeze, complimented by swinging of the leaves and the birds flapping their wings in unison. The special sunrise, the special walking trail, and the special place to sit, tempt you tp pay them repeated visits….

Binsar

Perched on top of a hill with a spectacular view of the snow capped peaks and the Almora valley, Binsar is the epitome of serenity and tranquility. Surrounded by abundant garlands of alpine flora, ferns, hanging moss and many other species of wild flowers, this is as close as you’d get to heaven. Binsar is one of the most scenic spots and acclaimed hill resorts in the Kumoun Himalayas.

Dunagiri

We invite you to meet us at Dunagiri Retreat, where heaven meets the earth! An eco yoga retreat center for groups and individuals, we delight in hosting travellers seeking a reunion with self through nature. Set against a stunning backdrop of Himalayan snow peaks, offering you the luxury of nature’s splendor, we let you discover that beauty reveals the soul itself! Located in Uttarakhand, known as ‘Devbhumi’- the land of the Gods – we are a ‘shakti-peetha’ or an energy center, home of the Goddess. Here, it is believed, the distance between heaven and earth shrinks, the veil between the two worlds becomes so “thin”, one is actually able to perceive something of heaven itself, receiving a glimpse of the glory of God.
