“What a village and what a view !”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Rackhcham village is one of the most peaceful and soulful places you can visit in Himachal. Chitkul is about 20-30 mins away and just to walk through the quite meadows with the gentle sound of the wind and river - Its like a fairy tale story

The hotel has a great view and good food as well (rooms are only average - but you are not coming here to stay in the room anyways) .

Mr Naresh was very helpful and very knowledgeable (in case you want to plan some itineraries).

Visit Rackhcham and stay here - You won't be disappointed !

Room Tip: Choose the top floor room with a clear view of the river

I along with my wife & son stayed at Rupin River View Hotel , Rakcham, for 3 nights (Oct 13th to 15th). The view from the Hotel is terrific & the whole surrounding area -- the mountains , the river , the valley & the Hotel within this setup - it's heavenly. Words & photos will not be able to justify the true beauty of this place. You just have to visit this place !!
Also the Rooms at the hotel ,24 hour hot & cold running water & excellent service makes it a further great experience.
Here I should also mention about Mr Naresh Jitshu , the owner of the hotel. I depended totally on him for our Kinnaur Tour. I got his reference from one of my friends & contacted him over phone (09816686789). He made all our arrangements -- Vehicle for the whole trip , Hotel bookings at Rakcham, Kalpa (Hotel Rolling Rang ) , Sarahan (Hotel green valley) & Chail (Hotel Ekant ). Incidentally he is the owner of the hotels at Kalpa & Sarahan. All great hotels , great service & a very good driver (Ladi). For us things could not get better than this. And all thanks to Nareshji. In fact my suggestion is if you are planning to visit Kinnaur , contact Mr Naresh , submit requisite advance to his current account , ask for his suggestions & relax. He would take care of the rest.

Thanks & Regards
Dipankar Bhattacharjee , Kolkata

Room Tip: Go for the Top Floor.

We stayed in Sangla for 3 nights (Sep28-30), a group of 6 friends, and had a memorable experience @ Rupin at Rakcham Village. Mr.Naresh, the owner of the hotel was extremely courteous and warm and went out of the way to make our vacation memorable. Am breaking down the review on a few parameters which were imp for us:

Location - 10/10, Amazing view from the 1st and the 2nd floor of the Baspa river and the valley. Though ground floor rooms have their own ambiance with a view of the apple trees laden with fruit and the peaks beyond. And the ground floor rooms are cheaper too with immediate proximity to the garden where we had the bonfires.

Rooms - 9/10, The rooms though not plush are more than what one can expect in such a remote location. With almost 24 hr electricity, and hot and cold running water and extremely clean bathrooms, there was nothing to complain except for the creaky beds, which otherwise warm and comfy, wailed like they were being beaten to death when you tried to change your sleeping position.

Staff - 7/10, Except for Mr.Naresh and a couple of other staff members, the rest of the staff is a little grumpy and are slow in responding to your requests. Thanks, to Mr. Naresh, who joined us at the Bonfires and arranged for quick service from the staff.

Food - 8/10, Some items were really good while the others were average, but overall it was a good experience with you being able to get such a spread at this kind of a location. Do try out the apple juice which is amazing. Be very sure to spell out how you want your eggs to be done as the person taking the order almost everytime managed to screw them up by communicating something else to the cook.

If you are travelling to Sangla Valley, and want to have a low budget but good accommodation then Rupin at Rakcham should be your choice. The other good option I had researched was Banjara Camps, at Sangla Valley, but the room rents are almost 3-4 times higher per night than at Rupin though the room furnishings and facilities there are at the next level. But if I compare the location of Rupin and Banjara Camps, Rupin's location will anyday beat Banjara hands down.

Thanks again to Mr. Naresh, who made our vacation memorable which actually made us all want to go back to Rakcham once again, probably as soon as next year.

I along with my family stayed this hotel on the way to CHITKUL, actually our guide cum driver "SONU" sugested us to stay there and really we enjoyed a lot with wonderful experiences for two days.Hotel Rupin River View at an elevation of 3050m located on right bank of river BASPA.It has 13 rooms with all modern facilities,all rooms has balcony with tremendous view. It has a good restaurant too and while having your food one can enjoy music of baspa river ghusting down in the valley. As far as service is concerned nothing is there negative because of the team under leadership of Mr.Naresh Jishtu the owner of the hotel.So friends take a break on the way to chitkul at Hotel Rupin River View to get some fresh energy.

We stayed at the Rupin Riverview for 2 nights in June and were blown away by the views from the room balcony. The hotel is perched right on the edge overlooking the river Baspa. Rooms on the upper floor have a fabulous view and the sound of the water was so soothing. The rooms are small with basic furniture but the view more than makes up for this.The restaurant windows too have a great view of the Baspa and the snow clad ranges and served good steaming meals which were a delight in the cold.

Compared to the hotels in Sangla, we found this to be a better option to explore Rakcham and Chitkul. We took the proprietor, Mr. Naresh Jitsu's suggestion and trekked upto the glacier across the river. Walking across picture perfect meadows with gurgling streams and sheep grazing around was straight out of the Enid Blyton books we grew up on! The experience is exhilerating. My 9 yr old daughter had a great time sliding down the ice on the glacier. We also loved to walk to the little village of Racham down the road with wooden houses and a few small shops selling necessities. We definitely be back soon.

Room Tip: Take a room on the 2nd floor.

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 treck upto ITBP border post along the sangla river. Amazing holiday.
We traveled in May 2012.

Room Tip: Pl ask for the tent.
