Davi’s fall: Locally known as PataleChhango is an awesome waterfall lying about 2 km south-west of Pokhara airport on the highway to Tansen. The water that feeds the Davi’s Fall comes from the Phewa Lake, which follows a rocky stream to eventually rush down the waterfall and disappear. The passages that run under the ground are connected to the hole below the waterfall. The best time to view this spectacular sight is during the monsoon season when there is a high rainfall and the summer season. An interesting modern legend says that a foreigner named David was dipping in the Pardi Khola (river) when the floodgates of the dam were opened, sweeping him into an underground passage beneath the fall, never to be seen again.

Gupteswar Cave: Gupteswar Cave is a sacred cave, lies 2 km from Pokhara airport. The entrance is right across from Davi’s fall and the cave is almost 3 km long.
