Rakkh Resort

Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh
last updated: 30 Jan 2020

An hour-long drive from Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh, Rakkh Resort is a rejuvenating retreat set amidst the dominating Dhauladhar mountain range. When at Rakkh, gorge on multi-cuisine fares, soak your feet in Gumma salt that is known to relieve muscles, and explore activities like pottery, rock climbing, yoga, and slack-lining.

Lifestyle Asia Reviews

Typically, every property has an essence – what you may choose for a destination wedding may not be your pick for a rejuvenating getaway. But here, that essence is ‘Visit Rakkh to be yourself’. There’s no preconceived vibe, and how subtly they create the freedom to just be yourself is something to marvel at.
