“We shall be back again and again and again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2011

My first visit to this place "Rupin River View" at Rakchham was in June, 2010 with friends. I was so charmed with this place that when I decided to revisit this Sangla-Chhitkul area of Himachal with my parents in October, 2010, I reselected this without hesistation.
Sangla is a very common staying place for tourists and Rakchham comes in the midway between Sangla and Chhitkul and much less accepted one.
The first view of "Rupin River View" at Rakchham will not be very impressive, but the moment one enters the rooms, a magical world unveils. Sufficiently spacious clean rooms, fairly large bathroom with running hot-water and a small balcony hanging over the garden of apples and vegetables, and now, .......raise your eyes - the source of the the sound that had welcome you ever since you entered the room. was right in front of you. The youthful Baspa river. There is still more - the valley with colorful crops, glaciers, snow-capped mountains what else do you need? As with such remote places, the fitness centre will be walking through the valleys not gym, children will run in the valley, climb rocks, collect flowers but there will be no artificially arranged park.
The restaurant serves fresh and tasty food with a still better natural view. It was surprising how efficiently the food is managed in such a remote place. The only problem could be climbing the stairs to the restaurant. This is a general trend in Kinnaur - wherever you go, the gap between two steps is always much more than we are used to. Never mind, if you have problem with climbing, room-service is available. However, if the hotel is very crowded (as in June-July) you will need to place the order sufficiently long before.
The review remains incomplete if I do not mention the names of Mr. Naresh Jistu and Mr. Jitendra - the pillars of this place who were ever helping for us. The service and public relation both are superb. They also arrange interesting trekkings for interested groups.
The best thing about this place is its position associated with a very good service. If you wish to have a very quite time, simply sit in the balcony with a cup of coffee/tea and a book, listen to Baspa's music and read or, watch the life by Baspa's side. or, just cross the river, walk through the valley, through small streams, fields - an ideal place for meditation. If you are adventurous enough, walk through the simply mesmerizing road to Chhitkul. If you have a car you can drive there too but, while returning just get down from the car and walk back to have a memorable journey. Or, talk to Mr. Jistu and Jitendra for a short trekking.
My sister is again going back to this same place this October and I shall select the same place when I will visit this area. In June-July you will have really snow-capped peaks surrounding you and in September-October you will see bright blue sky, red apples. Now what is your preference?
