What our Clients say

This resort claims to have the best view in Auli, and i cant agree more. The staff was very very friendly and were always on their toes. They cooked amazing food and made sure we didnt face any issues regarding hot water, cold water, unlimited cold coffees, pakoras, trekking shoes, etc.

We have to admit that we did not expect such comfortable and homely atmosphere at the Lodge.The view of Nanda Devi peaks from the dining room windows were absolutely amazing. The weather was freezing cold outside but they made sure to keep us cozy..with all the room heaters,electric bed.


Nothing had prepared me for the wonderful and enriching experience that Devi Darshan offered us. The lodge is located in a stunning location in Auli, with a breathtaking view of the Nandadevi peak. The hospitality was excellent; the staff and helpers were incredibly resourceful and helpful.

Akshay S.

Auli is really unique in that you don’t just have views of mountains in the distance but you are right in the middle of them. Devi Darshan Lodge really takes advantage of this. Also it is positioned so you see both the sun rise and the sunset (at least in winter). It really is just spectacular!
