“Nice and Cosy.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

This place has an excellent view of the mighty Baspa river and you can just sit in the balcony of the rooms and forget all your worries.Another plus point just cross the river and you are transported to a place where there are meadows,cows grazing,mountains,small streams from the melting snow,small glaciers which you can trek in about an hour or two.We travelled with 4 kids 2 senior citizens and 3 of us all in our early 40s.Now about Rupin river view....
1.Rooms on the first floor are enough for 2 adults and a kid.Housekeeping needs to be spruced up.
2.Room Service is there but a little slow and you have to keep reminding them.
But I guess being in such a remote place finding and retaining the staff could be an issue.
3.Food.....Excellent especially the Rajmah and kashmiri aalu,it was just too sumptious as we were coming from all hptdc places where we had access to only dal makhni and jeera aalu.....
4.Mr.Naresh Jishtu,the owner and his friendly team...hats off.

Room Tip: first and second floor rooms are the best.

We stayed at Swiss tent provided by Hotel Rupin River View near the sangla river bed at Village Rakcham. The palce is untouched so pure and natural that we feel that 2 nights stay was not enough.
The owner of hotel was very good person and very helpful.
We 4 family consisting 15 person and enjoy lot.
We treck upto ITBP border post along the sangla river. Amazing holiday.
We traveled in May 2012.

Room Tip: Pl ask for the tent.

I had booked this place a couple of months in advance but still was not able to get a room. The road from Karcham was uncomfortable & dusty with blasts happening increasing our journey time. After the initial few kms, the Sangla valley spread and we feasted on its beauty. Beyond Sangla (some 12 odd kms) is the tiny hamlet called Rakcham - we chose this as on an earlier trip we had stayed in Sangla for 3 nights.

We were provided a tented accomodation down by the river. The tented accomodation was decent with hot water on demand. The dining area was bad and the food below average. However the walk by the river amidst beautiful snow capped mountains made me forget all.

Next day we were moved to the Hotel : The rooms have the river view and apart from this are ordinary. The food was good not great considering we are in Kinnaur I think this is one of the better options for food. Bathrooms has running hot water!!!

Service, cleanliness, professionalism etc can be a lot more better. Discuss you rates before hand.

Do not miss the Kamru fort and Chitkul (especially the drive - do pack ur lunch and have it on yur way besides a stream).

before reaching the hotel we had a very long and hectic drive as we by mistake went to the road to Peo.we reached there at 9.30pm and the hotel owner himself came to greet and help us.room was 4 beded simply furnished..
and next morning i saw the best ever view from the balcony..can not explain in words..being in remote area i can understand that it is only a basic hotel but roaring music of Baspa(just few steps away from hotel)and the breath taking views passifying every thing..Chitkul is only 1/2 hr drive and i saw a far better option as Rakcham rather then Sangla proper..every thing the river, the mountains nearby..
food in taste was good but serving time is little late.
hotel owner Mr Naresh jitshu is a humble man and all the time available to sort out your problems..
the place like this which is not well connected ,it is the best place to stay,as they are doing their best with the limited resources.i have stayed in many star categery luxury hotels but can say the serene location, and tasty food and generous nature of the owner made our 2 days stay memorable in a simple but homely hotel..
i must say it is economically priced also.
if i get a chance to visit this valley again surely Rupin River will be my choice again..

Room Tip: book the hotel not the camp,which is old construction..book prior as it seems the only good accomoda...

Stayed there for 2 nights. Horrible experience after staying in some wonderful hotel at kalpa and sangla. First they messedup with my booking date in spite of paying full amount well in advance. Then they provided a lot of excuses. We had to stay in there camp which is smaller than a big double bed and bathroom floor made up of clay. Then we were shifted to this hotel. Except the view there is nothing good and enough to spoil ur moodd with stale food and smelly blankets

The location of the hotel itself is very serene along with good food and decent accomodation. even the room rents are affordable almost half cost of putting up in tents .their restaurant serves really tasty food and is economically priced. chitkul a place must to visit in sangla is near by about 30mins drive from this hotel. early morning scenes of flowing river n snow peaked mountains make your drive worthwhile. a word of caution roads are really bad and not anything around NH-22 level!! environment is amazingly fresh and non polluted. this is the best u can get at such an altitude !!

Room Tip: all rooms are valley facing.

i havnt seen any awsum location before visiting rupin river view..and it was one of the best place for the nature lovers..we went in the month of march..and according to our view it was the best time to visit that location.really it the heaven on earth.the peaks of himalaya as fully covered with snow.and the veiw of the river baspa with snow makes it more beautiful.Mr.Naresh jishtu one of the most humble man.who took all the responsibility to make our trip more beautiful.and according to the place the food was best.and the services.one and all must go once to rakcham and enjoy the nature.
