Pokhara does not have many monumental sights like Kathmandu does. But that does not matter since this
beautiful town is more of excursion. However, for the more energetic, there are a few places around that
are worth a visit. To begin with, Pokhara’s bazaar area, especially the old part, is a pretty fascinating place. Here one can imagine the roll of the stone-paved sidewalks of this quiet area. All commercial activities have shifted to other areas – all the better since the old market still retains its quaint character of a town that time has passed by. DAVIS FALL:Is a small but extraordinary waterfall. It’s original Nepali name of patale Chhango has now given way to the Anglicised version because a tourists by the name of Davis had plunged to his death in this particular the shapes of the stones and rocks through which the stones and rocks and rocks through which the water drains are really unique and worth seeing.
MAHERRA CAVE: Is a limestone cave with stalagmites and stalactites. It is a cave that is interesting
from a religious point of Hindu gods and goddesses on the walls of the cave and these are said to have
occurred naturally. Electric lamps illuminate parts of the cave but it is safer to go in with torches or
candles since power failure is quite common. THE SETI GORGE: Is formed by the milky white Seti
River which flows across Pokhara and in places runs so deep underground that it cannot be seen. This is
because of the porous character of the soil which is rich with limestone. “Seti” in Nepali means “white”,
the colour of this river’s water that comes from its mixing with limestone. Over time, the Site river has
carved a deep and narrow gorge whose fascinating vistas is best seen from Mahendra pool and from
across the airport runway. BINDHYABASINI TEMPLE Is the most famous religious site in Pokhara.
The temple, dedicated to the goddess Durga, is an ornate structure constructed on a tiny hillock that
constructed on a tiny hillock that gives a commanding view of the town. The Pokhara Museum houses
