Locally known as Pataale Chhango (approx. 100m long & 30m below ground) is a underworld water fall in Pokhara which draws in scores of visitors. On 31st July 1961, a Swiss couple went on swimming but the woman named “Devis” being swept away in the Paardi river when the barrage blocking the river was suddenly opened without notice. Unfortunately she never returned and the waterfall continued to be linked to her name. On her reminiscence, her father wished to name it “David’s falls” after her but it was changed to “Devi’s Fall”.
