The Pluck to Cup Tea Experience at Rakkh Resort:

This is the perfect excursion for guests who wish to take a gentle stroll through pristine tea gardens, as well as visiting a working Tea Factory, and get a chance to see the complicated and ingenious process that goes into making a perfect cup of tea

Rakkh Facts!

Life in the hills is difficult and the greatest arsenal for coping in this difficult terrain is an active social life and community engagement.

We promote this ethos among our guests. Hence we do not offer in-room dining, as breaking bread together is a great bonding experience.

Social Distancing while Travelling!

Bir is 1 hour and 20 minutes from Rakkh, 30 km ahead of Palampur. It is ranked the second most beautiful paragliding site in the world. Having conducted the Paragliding World Cup in October 2015, a 20 min adrenaline pumping jump in Bir should definitely top your bucket list. You could stop at Bajinath Temple on your way back and thank God for surviving the wonderful experience.

An Essential Guide to Family Bonding

Yes, we know, in these times of lockdown to fight the Corona Virus, we have all been thrown together. Families – Father, Mother, Children, all scrambling away to get through this difficult time. Although everyone seems to be together under one roof, these are trying times, with the working parents constantly on the phone or in front of those screens with several faces, with the children left to be by themselves all day long with video games as companions, we would hardly call this bonding!
Wait until the lockdown is lifted and drive to the hills of Palampur to rediscover your bond with your loved ones. Here is an essential guide we have put together for your benefit!

Hills of Kangra

Hills of Kangra along with the upper regions of Himachal which are predominantly mountainous are home to the the Gaddi tribe who have been practising pastoralism for aeons, going up the hills with their livestock of sheep and goats during summers and back down to the valleys in the winters, in search of good pastures. On one of their pastoral paths they travel through Rakkh and twice a year, it is a scene to behold; Gaddis along with their goats scurrying up and down the mountains. Come be a part of this unique cultural immersion at Rakkh Resort, Palampur.

Once upon a time, there was an adventure

As the dust rises with wheels slipping beneath you, sweat pouring down your brow as your body tenses, rolling down a mountain on your bike, with nothing but your will and wheels. The sun shines welcoming you to a rare company as you glide over high mountains as you court the winds and thermals for an epic love story with your heart in your mouth

Learning at Rakkh!

Why don't you try your hand at Himachali Culinary Art when you visit us at Rakkh Resort?

One of the most beloved and anticipated experiences is the Himachali Rasoi (or Kitchen) inspired by the famed Dham feast of Himachal. It is prepared by our local staff headed by Hema aunty, our ‘Woman Friday’ in the words of Robinson Crusoe. In the open-walled kitchen built in the traditional style of the region, this adobe or mud hut becomes the locus of activity as the night falls, with the fragrance of Makki di Roti made from fresh flour at the local Pan-Chakki (flour mills operated by running water) dripping in ghee and Saag made from the farm-fresh vegetables of our Organic Garden ticking the boxes of sustainable immersion.

Kangra is surrounded by snowy Dhauladhars

Kangra is surrounded by snowy Dhauladhars, altitude varying from 427m to 6401m suitable for the most challenging and exhilarating treks and hikes.
