About Tonglen Retreat

Outside of Dullstroom, set on the highest mountain, overlooking the magnificence of Mpumalanga exists a place unlike any other, Tonglen Retreat. With a huge space to roam on the roughly 300-hectare farm, nature lovers come from far and wide to walk, run, bicycle, hike or merely meander gently for hours on end.

As an ancient piece of ground, we have many relics to be discovered, one being the Koi San runes part of Adams Calendar and our very unique labyrinth.

Self Catering Accommodation

Tonglen Retreat offers one self catering cottage and four Khayas. The Khayas are designed for groups as they have a separate fully functional industrial kitchen stocked with everything you need perfect for catering or feeding the family.

Please see the individual unit descriptions with photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

The centerpiece of the farm is our Dharma centre, which has two huge rooms. Room 1 has a double sided fireplace and two seating areas with couches, massage table, games and extra blankets. Room 2 is the Activities Room with a fireplace, table tennis and couches.Wood is supplied for the fireplaces. There is also the unique labyrinth and braai facilities.

Fresh spring running water always accessible for drinking and bathing (our showers are powered by a donkey broiler which we maintain for you). Cleaning services are available at an additional daily cost.
