Nestled in the breathtaking Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand lies Regcha, a small village that offers a
glimpse into the authentic rural life of the region. To reach Regcha, one must embark on a scenic
journey through the rugged terrain, starting from Jakhol in a local jeep. Brace yourself for a bumpy ride
as the road to Regcha is not well-paved, but the adventure that awaits is well worth it.
As you leave Jakhol behind, the descent to the river bed begins, guiding you towards the mesmerizing
Supin River. To cross the river, you'll carefully traverse a makeshift log bridge that sends a chill down
your spine, adding an element of thrill to your journey. Once you've crossed the bridge, a sense of
tranquility washes over you as Regcha reveals itself.
Regcha is surrounded by a light forest that adds a touch of serenity to the village. However, it is the lush

events resonate in the tales shared by the villagers and can be witnessed in the architecture that graces
