This is a fort at an elevation of 1859 mts., 7 kms. from Lohaghat and 20 kms. from Champawat (Lohaghat to Karnakarayat is 6 kms. by bus and Karnakarayat to Vanasur ka kila 1 km. by foot ) along the Bhowali road, is the fort of Vanasur which can be seen of all sides. The names of Shonitpur and Lohawati are linked with the myth about the assassination of Vanasur at this place. One has to walk about 2 kms. to get to the fort. The fort seems to be a construction belonging to the middle ages, but the story of Vanasur was probably associated with the spot even before the construction of the fort. Lohawati river originates near this place.
