Experience the Blissful & Blessed stay at Vanprastha Resorts in Dunagiri Mountains, which is situated at the lotus feet of Mahavtar Babaji’s Cave and is placed right in the foothills of the Himalayas. Just 1.5 kilometres away from the place where Babaji initiated Lahiri Mahasaya in the year 1861 & is known as birth place of “Kriya Yoga” in an introverted gentle village called Ratkhal. This nest of utter, gentle calm is where life takes a restful pause to meditate on things far more profound than the worldly.

Upon reaching your destination, as your vehicle gently rolls down the hillside, the resort in hiding till then, comes into view. You notice its terraced topography as it meanders 100 feet, right down to the Babaji’s Cave, while all around, the mighty Dunagiri  Himalayan mountains play watchful guardian. This 3025 sq mtr luxury resort in Dunagiri Hills with its eco-friendly habitat, is designed to not intrude on its premises.

What is Vanaprastha? 

Vanaprastha is a composite word in which'vana' means "forest, distant land", and 'prastha' meaning "going to, abiding in, journey to". The composite word literally means "retiring to forest". Vanaprastha is a part of the Vedic Ashram System, which starts when a person hands over household responsibilities to the next generation, takes an advisory role, and gradually withdraws from the world. This stage typically follows Grihastha (householder), but a man or a woman may choose to skip householder stage, and enter Vanaprastha directly after Brahmacharya (student) stage, as a prelude to Sannyasa (ascetic) and spiritual pursuits.

Note: “Vanprastha Resorts” is an Eco- Yoga Resort & consumption of alcoholic drinks (Liquor), Tobacco & Smoking is strictly prohibited inside the property. Furthermore, Food served at the resort is strictly vegetarian. The tariff per night includes all meals for the Guests.
