Located at a distance of 135 km from Islamabad this picturesque and beautiful fort, on the top of a hill, is surrounded by the Jhelum river from three sides.
Picturesquely located on the summit of a hill, Ramkot Fort is built on the site of an old Hindu temple on the banks of the Mangla dam lake. Three sides of the hilltop are surrounded by the Jhelum River, which falls into the huge reservoir of Mangla Dam.
Ramkot fort is located on the opposite side of the Mirpur city and one has to cross the Mangla Dam to reach there through the boats. It takes overall 45 minutes to reach this fort from Mirpur city. A 10 minutes travel by road from Mirpur leads to Sukhian and nearby Army Water Sports Club, from where boats are available for access to Ramkot Fort.
There is a small museum too which contains several kinds of rocks, paintings, and model of Mangla Power House.
From the fort, one can take a look at the surrounding stunning areas covered with water and small lush green cliffs.
