Located in the outskirts of the town, this is a hillock which is named after another character from the epic Mahabharata –Hidimba who was actually a demoness. According to mythology, Hidimba transformed herself as a beautiful lady to attract the Pandava brother - Bhima. Today, the hillock is known to harbour a large number of wildlife species and an environmentalist by the name of Vankhandi Maharaj has taken upon himself to preserve the area. He has established the Vankhandi Ashram which is surrounded by a wildlife sanctuary known for its rare flora and fauna. This is a great opportunity for many to view wild life in their natural habitat.
