Gonasika (45 km )* :
Surrounded by a series of valleys and wooded hills of varying colours, the place is famous as a center of pilgrimage for the temple of Brahmeswar Mahadev, established on the river Vaitarani. In fact, this is the place from where the river starts flowing. A little away from the point of origin, the river goes under ground and hence called Guptaganga, only to be seen jumping after a short distance over a stone projection looking like the nostril of a cow. The scenic beauty of the place is simply charming.
