Introducing Rampur

The gateway to Kinnaur, this bustling bazaar town was once the capital of the Bushahr rajas. Today, Rampur is mainly a place to change buses, but if you have a few minutes check out the delightful, terraced and turreted Padam Palace, built in 1925 for the maharaja of Bushahr; only the garden is open to visitors. It's just beside the bus stand.

The huge Lavi Fair is held yearly in the second week of November, attracting traders and pilgrims from remote villages.
