Locally known as Patale Chhango (Hell's fall), Devi’s fall is one of the major tourist destinations in Pokhara. It is just 2 km away from Central Pokhara. It is an awesome waterfall and you can’t stop yourself saying ‘WOW’. Devi’s fall plunges into a cave and disappears into the earth. In the monsoon, the sight is most spectacular. Legend has it that the name was put in the memory of a tourist named David who was swept down the waterfall. This fall is also known as Davy's fall, David's fall or Davis's fall, meaning the same water fall.
