“Touch the serenity, feel the Himalayas”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

Want to spend time in the lap of nature?This is the right place to be with mind blowing view from the balconies attached to each of the rooms and the dining hall.We took pride over taking the decision of not staying at Sangla but 10 km ahead at this virgin place called Rachkam, the moment we reached there.With basic amenities and outstanding scenic beauty the hotel offers exotic holidaying option.The experience of strolling along the other side of the Baspa river in the afternoon one can cherish lifelong.The hotel is situated at the bank of Baspa with the snow clad mountains touching the sky all around.The alpine green meadows below the snow lines, dark thick conifer jungles , apple and cherry orchards ...what else do you want to feel yourself in heaven? Listen to the song by Baspa whole day long , discover anonymous brooks taking birth from the slopes of high mountains to die over Baspa.But if you want luxury this place is not yours.

Room Tip: Rooms at the same floor as the dining hall offers great views . You can also book tents if intereste...

We arrived here late at night and opening the curtains in the morning was a 'wow' moment. The views of the mountains are stunning.

Staff are very helpful and the food was good.

On the downside the rooms are unheated, slightly ramshackle and basic.

we stayed three nights in this hotel. very neat and clean hotel with excellent view and wonderful view. we were travelling with kids and were very happy with the services provided to us. Rupin riverview has tents also and one can try that as another option. it's next to the river and view from the hotel is mindblowing. this is averygood option if planning to stay in rakcham.

it was a last minute plan to stay at the hotel after thankfully giving sangla the skip ... n was real glad having done so!
While rakcham was itself a relevation ... Rupin river view made the stay even more memorable.
Its the only hotel at rakcham n yes they dont monopolise on this fact.located bang at the entry of the rakcham village with the baspa flowing right below it ... couldn't ask for a better location than this with every room giving a lovely view of the entire valley n the snow-capped mountains.the restaurant is so located that it does offer you some even better all-round views than the rooms!
Food is the strong point of the hotel..considering the remote location of the village n can safely order anything..b it veg or non-veg.let the cook have his time n what you'll get is fresh n homely cooked food.
As a tip..will suggest fellow travellers to consider booking d room on the same level as d restaurant...as the rooms r just large enough to accomodate 2ppl ... you will have to go to the restaurant for your food n tea as well!
With no tv in d rooms ...which is a blessing..restaurant is the only place which has a tv set ..enough to keep some people glued to it.
But the restaurant is a nice n cozy place to b with the corner seat giving you d best all-round views..which made me occupy the same seat throughout my entire stay.
Will definitely recommend d hotel to anyone opting for rakcham...with its positives weighing much more than its negatives,which r hardly any!

Reviewed 16 April 2012

'River view' is a misnomer. The River Baspa here is a mere trickle, or so it was in April. The hotel really ought to be named Rupin Mountain View, and a glorious view of snow capped mountains at that.

The Rupin is located at Rakcham, a small village approximately halfway between Sangla and Chhitkul.

All rooms overlook a splendid range of mountains towering over the Baspa valley. The view is so marvellous that one could spend hours just looking out at the stunningly beautiful panorama.

We had booked on the phone a few hours ahead, though in season it is better to book well in advance as this is the only decent accommodation available in Rakcham. Naresh Jishtu the proprietor , greeted us on arrival and showed us our room which was clean and reasonably large with picture windows and a balcony, though it was too freezing cold to sit out there during our stay! Even the bathroom window afforded an excellent view of the mountains.

We requested and were provided with a heater which was not at all effective being a mere 400W, with a freezing draft seeping in through improperly sealed doors and windows. However the two 4kg quilts in the room ensured a warm and cozy night.

Though there was a proper geyser in the bathroom, the flow from the hot water faucet was low. Another con was frequent power outage in the evening. Though Naresh ji said it was not the norm, the presence of several solar panels in the village opposite seemed to suggest otherwise.

Naresh-ji apologetically said that this year the winter was prolongued, normally it should not be this cold in April.

Meals were delicious, served piping hot and cooked to our preference. Naresh-ji suggested that we cross the river and take a short walk on the opposite bank which also led to glaciers running off the mountains. We took his advice and enjoyed the outing. Later, we explored the old village of Rakcham with its wooden houses and temples just across the road from the Rupin.

The Rupin River View can not be beaten for its magnificent views. It is reasonably priced and a good choice to spend a few days exploring the region. Getting there though is murderous with horrendous roads, if at all they can be deemed 'roads'. When we phoned to book, we had asked Naresh ji about the road condition as we were coming in from Sarahan. He said that the road was good which was a blatant falsehood. When we jokingly confronted him with this, he nonchalantly proclaimed that the roads were much worse earlier than they were now and hence he said they were good!
