Devi's Falls, Pokhara Overview

Davis Fall in Pokhara is an extraordinary waterfall which creates a 500 feet long underground tunnel as it reaches its bottom. This tunnel has brought the fall its name, i.e. Patale Chango in the Nepalese language, which means "underground waterfall." Fed by Phewa Lake Dam, the waterfall is surrounded by abundant flora. A landmark of Pokhara, Devi's waterfall is a must-visit when in Nepal. Witness the grandeur of nature as you see this colossal fall struggling with rocks to set itself free.

Devi's Waterfall/ Davis Waterfall is different from other falls in the country due to its natural phenomenon. It marks the point where the Pardi Khola stream disappears underground and leaves no clue of its existence. When the monsoons are at full power, the splashes of water against the boulders create a terrific site.

Why the Name 'Davis Waterfalls'?

It was on July 31, 1961, when a Swiss couple Davi made their visit to this enchanting place. Little did they know that their adventure was about to take a dark turn. While swimming in its waters, the overflow pushed the woman in a sinkhole where she drowned. Her body was recovered after three days. It was at her father's request that the fall was named Davi's Fall. Some people even say that it was not only the woman who drowned but also her husband.

The fall got a local reference by the name of Devi's Falls, hence the name by which it is mostly known.

1. Visit the Gupteshwor Mahadev

As the name suggests, "a cave beneath the ground", acts as the source via which the fall's water passes after exiting the tunnel. The ancient cave beside the fall is known for its unique designs. People tend to forget the way through which they enter hence, be careful and use the presence of your mind while in the cave.

2. Experience the Nepalese culture
There are statues of people in traditional Nepalese clothes along with the model of typical Nepali Houses. Get your camera out and capture Nepal in its most authentic way!

3. Try your Luck at the Luck Pond
Visitors usually try impressing their fortune by throwing or placing a coin at the deity's statue in the luck pond. Don't be shy and be a part of this lot too!

In the past people had used this natural wonder as a suicide point, hence to avoid any such incidents in future government has fenced the whole area with metal wires. You are also suggested to keep your eyes wide open and legs a few feet away from the cliffs. Enjoy the beauty of the waterfall from a safe distance.
