Patale Chago, This waterfall, known as David Falls, is located in Pokhara, Kaski District. This waterfall, which falls below the ground level towards Gupteswar Cave, is worth seeing during the rainy season. A Swiss tourist named David fell from the waterfall and disappeared, hence the name David Falls. Through a natural tunnel, the waterfall falls from about 500 feet above to 100 feet below ground level. In 1961, while swimming in Phewa Lake, a Swiss tourist was swept away by an unexpected flood and her friends could not save him. Similarly, the body of the tourist was never found, so the falls was named David Falls after the man.
