Apart from the beautiful Simsang River, one can witness many rock formations along the banks of Simsang River, some of the structure resembles an elephant along with its babies. The local myth follows that once a group of elephants drank the water of the Simsang River and they were solidified into rocky structures. There are several other rock formations resembling other beings too.
