Rakcham Chitkul Sanctuary is a well-known destination that can be found in Kinnaur. It is situated at an elevation of around 5500 metres. It is one of the most well-known wildlife sanctuaries in the state of Himachal Pradesh and can be found in close proximity to both Sangla Valley and Chhitkul.
The reserve forest covers an area of 34 square kilometres and is known for being a paradise for hikers and others who are interested in nature.
The perilous Lamkhanga Pass is one of the many trekking routes that pass through this sanctuary. This pass connects the Himachal Pradesh province of Kinnaur to the Uttarakhand region of Gangotri. It is one of the many trekking routes that pass through this sanctuary.
The fact that Chittkul is the final Indian town before entering Tibet at the Indo-Tibetan border in Kinnaur is one of the primary reasons why so many visitors and bikers come to visit this refuge.
The climate of the sanctuary has earned it a great deal of notoriety; unlike the climate of other sanctuaries in Himachal Pradesh, the sanctuary is located in a dry zone, hence it does not experience monsoons.
At any time during the year, guests are welcome to visit the refuge. Dry Scrub woods are a component of the local flora. The leopard, blue sheep, musk deer, goral, Himalayan, and black bear are some of the animals that live there.
