A highlight of Gangoliha is the ancient Khat Lalika Temple, dedicated to the goddess Kali. This sacred site draws thousands of devotees and pilgrims annually seeking peace, spiritual harmony, and the splendor of nature.

Lastly, another prominent tourist destination is the Nakuleshwar Temple, a renowned religious site near Chowkori in Pithoragarh.
