Rakcham is the second-last village on the India Tibet border
If you want to experience a solitude place with no newspapers, post-office, internet, police station, markets, and wine shop; just a couple of local shops selling very basic food and groceries, you’re going to enjoy every moment of your life here. What you get instead are beautiful fields, snow-capped Himalayas, apple orchards, and lush green trees all around and River Baspa.
Rakcham is a quiet remote village located in Himachal Pradesh approximately 23 km from Chitkul, the second-last village before the Tibet border. Pronounced as “Rakshyam” by the locals, the Rakcham village is blessed with many beautiful gardens, snow-clad mountain ranges, and lush green trees.
The serene snow-capped top of the Kinnaur Kailasha mountains that border the district of Kinnaur also can be witnessed from this little village. The picturesque tiny village is in the charming Baspa Valley by River Baspa. It has a population of 800 -1000 people.
