Course

The source of the Durgavati is about 11 kilometres (7 mi) east of that of the Karmanasa. In its upper reaches it is a rocky channel 6 to 9 metres (20 to 30 ft) wide. It runs nearly north for about 14 kilometres (9 mi) when it plunges down the rocky boundary of the table land in to the head of deep glen named Kadhar Kho. There it is joined by three other torrents that like itself rise on the table land of the Turkan Kharawars and fall down the rocks at the head of the same glen. These three torrents are the Lohara, Hatiyadub and Kothas.The Durgavati joins the Karmanasa as a right bank tributary.

Waterfalls

The Durgavati Falls, 80 metres (260 ft) high, on the Durgavati River is at the edge of the Rohtas Plateau.

Dam

The Durgavati Dam is located near SAKRI KUDRA town in Kaimur district.
