Flowing right through the city, the boisterous river Seti Gorge runs completely underground at many places. Amazingly, at certain points the river appears hardly two meters wide. Its depth is unfathomable – over 20 meters! Mahendra Pul, a small bridge near the old Mission Hospital, provides a perfect view of the river’s dreadful rush and the deep gorge made by its powerful flow.
Gupteswar Cave is a sacred cave located near Devi’s Fall. The cave is almost three kilometres long. It has some big hall-size rooms and some passages. This cave holds special place among Hindus since phallic symbol of Lord Shiva is preserved here in its original form. Clicking pictures inside the cave is prohibited.
