A New Chapter Of Sustainability With Dharamshala Social!

Rakkh Resort in Himachal Pradesh is delighted and excited to announce a new partnership and friendship with a venture that has forever been a beacon to the heroes of Himachal Pradesh: The farmers, small business owners and people looking to make a difference. Rakkh has partnered with Dharamshala Social, a sustainable collective by Dharamshala folks.
We’ve now set up a kiosk for Dharamshala Social at our resort in Himachal Pradesh, and it contains some of the most special goodies from all across the entire state made with love and hard work by independent artists, small businesses, gourmet chefs and even researchers and other entrepreneurs. Let’s look at the collection of small businesses that are supported by Rakkh and Social!
Tenacious Bee: We all love honey. But the truth is that honeybees are now an endangered species and also no longer seen as useful thanks to commercial honey production. This is where the Tenacious Bee Collective comes in. In tandem with researchers, apiarists and farmers, the collective aims to restore ecological balance to the Himalayas with the help of honeybees and sell some delicious honey in the process. These honeys are raw and unpasteurized single floral honeys and collected sustainably directly from the beekeepers or apiarists. They also rely on traditional beekeeping methods as opposed to the industrialized techniques that harm the little ones. Do check out their floral honeys at our resort in Himachal Pradesh!

Mattu Ki Karigari:

A unique business owned by Mamta Devi, Mattu Ki Karigari is a fine example of local craftsmanship and the usage of indigenous material. Karigari meaning craftsmanship, Mamta’s business consists of selling natural handicrafts made entirely out of pine needles! The pine trees around our resort in Himachal Pradesh are primarily a native species known as pinus roxburghii. Mamta decided to turn these into beautiful baskets, tables, chairs and decorations for the home. A completely unique product out of something that proliferates in Himachal!

The High Station:
Founded by Abhishek Kapoor, The High Station is a boutique business that sells 100% organic ingredients that are not easy to get one’s hands on like whole turmeric, single floral honeys, black rajma, Quinoa and more! With unique products like Eucalyptus honey and pure desi ghee that Abhishek sources from his surrounding villages, we just knew we had to try his stuff! The High Station truly leaves one in high spirits.
