You can also cycle around the lakeshore or just take a walk near this calm and tranquil lake.
Davis Falls: Its Nepali name is ‘Patale Chango’ which means ‘underground waterfall’ and it is one of the most visited places in Pokhara. The falls create a 500ft long tunnel when it reaches the bottom. Davis Falls was named after a Swiss woman who drowned in a pit due to overflow in 1961. Her body was discovered after three days and the name was given on her father’s request. While here, you can also try your luck by throwing or placing coins at the deity statue in the luck pond.
Old Bazaar: This traditional bazaar is vibrant, colorful and it thrives with diverse traders. You can see Newar architecture in its buildings and temples. You can find various shops here to buy commodities ranging from clothes to edibles and cosmetics. The old bazaar is also home to Pokhara’s important shrine – Bindhyabasini Temple.
Gupteshwar Mahadev Cave: Davi’s Falls will lead you to Gupteshwar Mahadev Cave, which is the longest cave in Nepal. As you enter the cave, you will notice dripping water from the walls. There is an ancient statue of Lord Shiva which is visited by many pilgrims each year. You should be careful inside the cave as the path is quite slippery due to the waterfall.
