“This is at Rakchham NOT in Sangla. But, who cares! Worth a stay!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

I found this hotel while going through the map for my Chitkul travel. This is probably 10-15 km from Sangla at the fag end of Rakchham village. Chitkul is also 10-12 km from here. The owner, Naresh Kumar was very helpful and I contacted him over phone before reaching there several times for the local info.
All the rooms are facing the backside that face the Baspa valley, the village below and the snow capped mountains beyond. From the balcony of the upper level rooms, one can great a majestic view and I got wonderful early morning as well as late evening shots.
One can even walk down below from the hotel and cross the foot bridge to go to the other side of the river.
The room rents are extremely cheap and food price was also very reasonable. This is a much better stay in comparison to the highly publicized tent accommodations publicized for the Sangla region.

River Baspa and the surrounding terrain provide both swimming pool facility as well as fitness center that are ALL NATURAL!!!

Overall this is a hidden treasure at such a remote location!

Room Tip: If you can reach slightly early before other guests arrive, you can literally get a room of your cho...

We stayed at this hotel for a night during Kinnaur trip in March-2014. The best part of this hotel is the location - right on Baspa river, about 10 kms before Chitkul with some heavenly views of the Baspa valley and river. The rooms are spacious for a couple and if you book the upper rooms then you get a sit-out small balcony with amazing views and sound of the baspa river. The room and bathrooms are neat and clean and they have a nice cozy restaurant where their in-house cook turns out some good and tasty food, not to mention the fresh and hot soups. The staff is very helpful and friendly. As we had visited during end-March 2014, there was still no water in the pipes but we were provided water in buckets and heater for heating up the water - its a little inconvenient but then that's the best possible option in this kind of weather. You will have to be cautious with these heaters if you have kids staying with you.

What I didn't like in particular is the hotel owner removing one halogen bulb from each of the room heaters to save electricity cost though we were charged at full rates - one point less due to this reason.

Room Tip: Go in for the rooms at upper level for the best views

The view from the Hotel is amazing... I got in to the hotel and went to the balcony... I was completely mesmerize by looking at the view of the vally. What a place !!!

The Hotel Manager Mr. Thakur was kind enough to provide us a big room heater. Hotel Boys are always active and ready to take the order. The food is good... The best part is, have witnessed snow fall. It was amazing. All the trees and Mountain turned white in afternoon. The next day morning was completely blue in color... I wake up at 6 and went to my balcony, I see blue everywhere...

I love this Place and Hotel... Surely, I will visit again !!!

This is not at all a hotel which you mention in the reviews. its very small hotel with basic amenities & rooms type. BUT, the best stay we can ever stayed during a tour. The view of mountain river Sangla, the snow laden peaks in one side, in the middle of nature, all made us very satisfying in this hotel. The fresh trout fish & local apple wine was the best treat. the scenic beauty is kind of a text book picture of kindergarten. Go & stay with open mind, the surrounding & ambiance will make you forget about the luxuries of normal hotels in the plane.

Room Tip: Ask for river view rooms. Ask for trout fish & apple wine.

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.
