Inhouse Activities At Rakkh Resort Himachal Pradesh

Rakkh resort in Dharamshala is the perfect place to be if you’re looking for an experiential getaway from the hustle and bustle of the cities. For those seeking adventure, all one has to do is step out, and the towering foothills dotted with pine forests are your playground.

Keeping the spirit of activity in mind, our resort in Dharamshala is also host to a number of activities within the resort. Some are meant to engage your muscles while some are meant to engage the mind. And yet others do both! Here’s a guide to some of the inhouse activities at Rakkh.

Life is all about balance. So is slacklining! This precariously fun activity makes use of a thick line suspended between two anchor points. Your objective sounds simple: Walk across the line. It’s anything but simple, however! Slacklining involves immense physical and mental coordination. How long can you stay on the line without falling? What’s the fastest you can get across the line? The only way to find out is by taking part in slacklining when you are at our resort in Dharamshala!

One of man’s oldest inventions, archery was once a significant aspect of any pahadi being. The bow and arrow were the weapon of choice for many a hunter, and those defending their villages and towns in the hills. Today, the people of Himachal celebrate archery as part of a dance called Thoda during the festival of Anokhi Dali. This also commemorates Indian mythology as it is said that the pandavas of Mahabharat fame were said to have resided in Himachal, in the valleys of Kullu and Manali.   
Rakkh has its own archery range within our resort. Feel you have what it takes to string the bow and get a clear shot? Come by the range and try out some archery next time on your visit to our resort in Dharamshala!

An adventure activity that may not be as fast paced as the other activities but nonetheless one of our most popular activities that engages the mind! The pottery station at our resort in Palampur draws inspiration from the Andretta Pottery school in Dharamshala. However it is very much a traditional pottery setup with a wheel and clay. Get your hands dirty as you come to terms with the intricacies of setting the right speed, getting the right mixture of clay and water and shaping new memories at the helm of the wheel. Of course, you’ll have our in house experts to assist you at every turn.
