Situated at an average elevation of 1,525 metres, Rohru is a municipal committee located in Shimla District in the state of Himachal Pradesh. This beautiful town of Himachal Pradesh is situated along the banks of River Pabbar.  

The destination is known for the cultivation of apples, among which ‘rich red’ and ‘royal delicious’ are the most popular ones. Apart from the apples, Rohru is also an ideal location for trout fishing, which can be done at River Pabbar.

The history of fishing can be traced back to the time of Raja Bajrang Bahadur Singh of Bahadh. He was immensely attracted to this place and therefore decided to develop it into a location, which will be perfect for anglers. Other than trout fishing, paragliding, trekking and hang gliding are some of the activities that are available in Rohru.
