With winter just a hop and skip away, the age-old Lavi fair fills Rampur with a burst of activity. The town was once a major entrepot on the old trade routes to Kinnaur, Tibet, Ladakh and Afghanistan. Even today, the tradition is as vibrant as ever. By the churning waters of the river Satluj, a variety of goods including wool, dry fruit and horses are bartered and sold. The kharif crops have been harvested when at the legendary Renuka lake, a fair graces its banks. There is trade, recreation and amusement.
Idols of Lord Parshurama and Renuka Ji are ceremoniously dipped in the sacred waters of the Lake and it is a time when a lot of matching is done
Water Sports Competitions are held at Maharana Partap Sagar, Kangra and at Gobindsagar Lake, Bilaspur. In November, Himachal also host the Pre-World Cup Paragliding Championships at Billing in Kangra.
