Dronagiri Parvat

'तत्र द्रोणगिरिर्नामदिव्यौषधि समुद्भव: तमानय द्रुतं गत्वा संजीवय महामते'

That is, Ramchandra ji said when the Vanar Sena fainted, "O Hanuman, there is a divine medicine named "Sanjeevani" on Dronagiri Parvat, you go there quickly and bring it and revive the Vanar Sena."

On the basis of legends, Drona mountain is identified with Dunagiri located in Tehsil Ranikhet district Almora. Even today many medicines are produced on Dunagiri. But it is known from the quotation of Valmiki Ramayana that this mountain was situated between Kailasa and Rishabh mountains. The Dronachal visible from Badrinath and Tungnath is probably a reference to the same in Valmiki Ramayana.

This mountain is also visible from the famous winter trek "Kuari Pass Trek"
