About 2km south west of Pokhara airport on the highway to Tansen is a beautiful waterfall known as David’s fall. It was named after a foreigner David who was swept into an underground passage beneath the fall while swimming in the Pardi Khola.
There is a mysterious cave near the David’s fall known as Gupteshwor Gupha. It holds an auspicious value among the Hindu pilgrims because inside the cave is a well preserved shivalinga (phallic form of Lord Shiva) where people come and worship Lord Shiva. Therefore, it is also popularly known as the Gupteshwor temple.
