Also known as Patale Chhango, this waterfall marks the point where the Pardi Khola stream vanishes underground. When the stream is at full bore after monsoon rains, the sound of the water plunging over the falls is deafening.

Davis Falls (Nepali: Patale Chango meaning underworld falls) is a waterfall located at Pokhara in Kaski District, Nepal. An interesting aspect of the falls is that the water travels through a natural tunnel prior.

The water from the fall flow about 500 feets through the natural tunnel at the depth of 100 feet from ground level. In the year 1961, a Swiss tourist who was just swimming in the Phewa Lake was swept away due to the unexpected overflow in the dam water and his wife was helpless. Thus, his body was never recovered and was vanished forever.

Then the fall was named after his name as Davis Falls . In Nepali it is also called Patale Chango, which mean underground Waterfall. As, the name given the water flows under the ground through its natural tunnel of 500 feets from the fall made by the water currents beneath the land.

The water passes through the cave called Gupteshwor Mahadevcave beneath the land. The source of water is provided through the dam of Phewa Lake and in the rainy seasons the rise in the water level increases the flow and density of water in this fall. The natural scenery is very impressive. Have a LooK!
