Gohpur has a few places of interest such as the Dhandi Devalay, Gohpur Reserve Forest and Bor Pukhuri. Gohpur is just about 8 kilometres from the outer fringes of Kaziranga National Park.
While on a visit to the Kaziranga National Park, tourists can plan their itinerary in such a manner that they can visit Gohpur and be back to the park by evening. Tourists can hire a taxi from the park to reach Gohpur. It is advisable that they book the car for the entire day so that they can return easily too.
