You can always go for Pokhara Day Tour if you have short days of stay in Pokhara. The Pokhara sightseeing tour is the surreal adventure that lets you explore all of the major highlights of Pokhara. Day Tour in Pokhara usually begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. lasting for 6hours during which you will visit Phewa Lake, Gupteswor Temple, Davids Fall and International Mountain Museum.
Boating in Phewa Lake is the pleasant activity that lets you propel the wooden boat by yourself through the second largest lake in Nepal. The lake comes alive through the vibrant restaurants, lodges and bookstalls that becomes jam-packed with tourists. Paddle your boat all the way to popular Barahi temple that lies in the middle of the lake and enjoy the reflection of the Fishtail Mountain in the lake.
Existing near to the Davids fall is the famous Gupteshwor Cave. You can enter this cave by paying the small fee. The cave is popular among Hindu devotees for holding shivalinga (the phallic form of Lord Shiva).
Water from the falls disappears 100 ft below ground level which gives it a name of Patale Chhago (Patal meaning underworld which is believed to locate below earth in Hindu myth). It was later named Davids Fall in memory of a Swiss tourist named David who lost his life at this spot in 1961. It exists about 2km south west of Pokhara airport on the highway to Tansen.
