Rampur Bushahr (short called Rampur) is a small township situated at an altitude of 1,005 meters on the left bank of the Sutlej River. It is 130 km from Shimla and is well connected with National Highway 5 which passes through Theog & Narkanda.
Rampur used to be the capital of the former princely state of Bushahr in the 18th century. Since it fell on the ancient trade route to Afghanistan, Ladakh, China, and Tibet, Rampur benefited from a wide range of economic and cultural activities. From historical palaces to the temple villages of Nirath, Duttnagar, and Nirmand. There’s a lot to explore and experience here.
The highlight of the town is a fair called ‘Lavi’ that is held here every year in the month of November. Perhaps one of the biggest fairs in North India, the fair is popular among the people of Shimla and intrigues travelers.
