RAKKH, EXPERIENTIAL RESORT IN PALAMPUR

“One of the very nicest things about
life is the way we must regularly stop
whatever it is we are doing and devote
our attention to eating.”
– Luciano Pavarotti

CULINARY COSMOS


At Rakkh we believe in promoting local flavors, so there is a strong emphasis on local Himachal food on our menus, with its rich and out of this world flavours. Join us at our Himachal Kitchen for a taste of mountain food prepared the traditional way. Join us to cook and learn the secrets of this largely overlooked Indian local cuisine, and enjoy the spoils of your hard work at sit down Himachali feast at lunchtime.



Himachali Rasoi


One of the most beloved and anticipated experiences is the Himachali Rasoi 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. You could try your hand at cooking as your family sits around the hearth as fresh hot roti flies off the pan to your plate. Adding a zing to the feast is the old music playing on our Caravan radio or dance along with our Pahadi Nati, folk dancers and singers to the cheerful music of Kangra.
Himachali Rasoi happens every night for all group sizes and we are humbled to bring this local experience for your pleasure.

Kangri Dham


Dham is a no onion garlic, lentil and gram based, slow-cooked feast. It includes rajmah madra, kadi, khatta, sepu badi, and so forth, with rice, cooked by Botis using their preserved secret recipes in copper and brass vessels and served in pattal plates. Your arrival is reason enough for us to celebrate and organize the feast. For larger groups, we organize the Dhaam on request.

Maggi Station


Active holidays at Rakkh coupled with the fresh mountain air and happy you could mean a large appetite. Hunger can strike at any time. So we have generously created a Maggi Station for you, open 24/7. The catch you ask? Well, you and your loved ones have to cook together. All the supplies are kept ready including farm fresh vegetables from our organic garden to make a steaming hot bowl of sumptuous Maggi. If you have never cooked in your life and are on a digital detox, our display recipe could be quite useless. Good luck to you!

Local Jams and Pickles


The verdant hills of Kangra with its salubrious atmosphere is a paradise of fruiting orchards, with apples, plums, apricot, mango, strawberry among others. The sweet people of Himachal Pradesh led by the charming Linnet Mushran and Rebecca Mushran have crafted the most delicious jams, jellies, preserves and marmalades made from fresh organic produce keeping health and hygiene in focus. At Rakkh we invite this sweetness into our home and plates supporting local entrepreneurship adding value to the community by empowering local women, over a hundred of them, work at Bhuira Jams, all the while being sustainable. Many other local cottage industries, mostly operated by women, around here supply us with our pickles too.

Our Kitchen Garden

Studies have shown Gen Z is a more grounded generation with aspirations for a good work-life balance and are sensitive towards the ecological impact of our existence and choices. The growing popularity of urban gardens, hydroponics, vertical gardens even in the high rises of metros is a testament to the burning desire to be close to nature. We at Rakkh embody this love and have our own organic kitchen garden where guests are encouraged to involve and indulge in soil preparation, farming techniques through harvesting. A particular favourite among our guests is the strawberry picking season.

Our everyday kitchen supplies come from these organic patches where only seasonal produce is viable for a farm to table experience.
