Devi’s Fall in Pokhara, Nepal

Destination: Devi’s Fall 

Highlights:

There is not much of a hike to speak of, and there are guard rails in the viewing area which makes Davis Falls a great option for those not athletically inclined. Additionally, the path is partially paved, making access to viewing the falls even easier. 

The stream feeding the falls flows from a lake and traverses a tunnel before it enters the falls. There are multiple viewing areas on different levels, as the water flows through a rock formation. Most visitors agree that it it the front viewing platform that affords the best, most encompassing view. 

Outside of the falls area, there is a very popular wishing well of Goddess Manakamna Bhagwati and and one can purchase coins at the ticket counter to toss in while making their wish. In testament to the very touristic nature of the attraction, there is also a cut-out of a life size clay people couple that you can pose behind for a fun souvenir of your visit to Davis Falls.
After exiting the tunnel, the water passes through a cave called Gupteshwor Mahadev or "cave beneath the ground", so make sure to go there right after Devi's falls.

Best time:

Any time around the year is suitable however Monsoon is the best time to visit Devi's Fall.

Accommodation:

There are many hotels around Devi's falls but you need not necessarily stay there as you can easily reach anywhere inside Pokhara with little effort only.

Transportation:

Davis Falls is located along the Siddhartha Highway. It's reachable from Damside in Pokhara. The cave is across the road from Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave. Many people reach the waterfalls via the World Peace Stupa trek from Lakeside as part of a day or morning trip.

Description:

Also known as Patale Chhango, this waterfall marks the point where the Pardi Khola stream vanishes underground. When the stream is at full bore after monsoon rains, the sound of the water plunging over the falls is deafening. The falls are about 2km southwest of the airport on the road to Butwal, just before the Tashi Ling Tibetan camp. According to one of the many local legends, the name is a corruption of David’s Falls, a reference to a Swiss visitor who tumbled into the sinkhole and drowned, taking his girlfriend with him.
