Rakchham is a small village located at an altitude of 3115 m above sea level, on the banks of the Baspa River. The word Rakchham is a combination of two words, where ‘rak’ means a stone and ‘cham’ means a bridge. As per local belief, there was a natural bridge made up of stones over the river of Baspa and hence, the village received its name. The entire region is surrounded by various trees including the Himalayan cedar and bhopatra tree, the bark of which was used for writing the manuscripts in older times.
