Gupteshwar Mahadev Cave in Pokhara is the cave where the Devi’s fall leads to. Just across the road from Devi’s fall, a spiral staircase takes you to the entrance of Gupteswar Mahadev Cave. As you enter the cave, there are walls dripping water and the way around the cave is lit with a string of lights which often go off, so carrying torches in recommended. About 40m in you can see a statue of Lord Shiva which was discovered when two locals accidentally came across the cave. The statue is considered important and holy according to Hindu’s and witness quite a number of devotees on particular days. To reach the second part of the cave, you walk through a path cut off from the underground rocks, some sections of which are quite interesting and moderately difficult, the rock formations and the fact that water drips from every point of the cave is quite interesting.

As you reach the end you can finally see where the Devi’s fall ends, there is a temporary staircase built to climb to the point where you see the slit in the center of the cave.  As you reach the platform the roaring of the waterfall mutes all else, the force of the water is strong enough to splash droplets even if you stand quite far from it. A natural wonder in the truest sense.
