Terekhol River, also known as BANDA RIVER, rises in the Sahyadris to the south of Manohar fort, and flows-south-west by the villages of Sangeli, Vatvana, Insuli, Banda, Kas, Satosa, Kavthani, and Aronda. As far as Banda, or about 24 Kms from the sea, it is tidal and navigable for boats. Larger crafts cannot pass further than Aronda about five kms from its mouth. The Terekhol has no important tributaries, but is joined by many mountain streams and rivulets, and during the rainy season it becomes a very formidable river.
